Horses Welcome

Bring your own horse to Wiltonburn or hire one at one of the local stables and find yourself in horse heaven in the Scottish Borders. We have stabling for 3 horses plus sheep shed accommodation and good grazing available.

South of Scotland Countryside Trails is a 350km network of quiet off-road routes for walkers, horse-riders and cyclists linking to the Pennine Bridleway, Border Country Ride and other long distance routes. Few and far between are there places left where you can enjoy the solitude and unspoilt countryside still to be found in Scotland. Striding high on the hills above Wiltonburn or ambling through hidden valleys, you will feel a million miles from the stresses and strains of life.

The 95km (57 miles ) Buccleuch Country Ride offers seven routes through stunning Borders scenery in the Hawick and Selkirk areas and is marked with blue and white horseshoe signs, or purple Roman and Reivers sign. ( Pick up these signs at our road end!) You will find detailed descriptions for all these routes and more on www.ride-scotland.co.uk including downloadable maps, tips for planning you trip and route suggestions for half and full day rides or detailed packs from Scottish Borders Tourist Board priced £8.50, Approx.
