General

  • Luxury site with stream and hill views in the Scottish Borders
  • Fishing from site; 40 minutes' drive to 7Stanes mountain biking
  • Shop on site; two pubs with food within a 15-minute drive

Bring your boots and bikes to the Scottish Borders. It's a fine combo they serve up at Ettrick Valley Yurts: wilderness all around and warm, cosy interiors for your Borders berth. A little stream runs by the site for paddling and messing-about in; it joins up with the Ettrick river, which is fenced off but easily accessible for further exploring.

As you might have guessed, they take families and safety seriously here: that’s one reason why when you arrive, your kit will be shipped from the car park to your yurt by wheelbarrow, keeping the hilly grounds car-free and safe for all sizes of guests. Toilets and hot showers are two minutes’ walk away.

At the shop you can stock up on firewood and kindling for outdoor and indoor feasts as well as basic supplies; the site team are also happy to help with maps, leaflet and inside tips on the best stuff to do in the area.

Whatever you get up to, you’ll have a warm hearth to return to: woodburners keep your interiors toasty, there’s a gas hob and grill if you want to make real toast and cool box for whatever wee drams you like to keep chilled. Raised decks outside with picnic tables, firepits and barbecues mean you can sizzle your bangers as you gaze at the starry skies. (Pubs with grub are 10 and 15 minutes’ drive away.)

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Local attractions

This is great walking country with many paths passing close to the site; contact the site team who are true experts. To explore further take a half-hour drive to the Grey Mare’s Tail Nature Reserve and Trail, taking you through wildlife-filled moorlands to a fab waterfall. Stop off (so say the tipsters at Ettrick Valley) for a wander round St Mary’s Loch on the way back. Fishing types can try their luck (with permits) on the waters there and seek trout and grayling on the Ettrick.

If bikes are more your bag, Glentress and Innerleithen, both 40 minutes away, are part of the 7Stanes network of mountain biking centres, with bike hire and trails for all levels of ability and nerve. If you’re bringing a very special bike with you, the Ettrick Valley folks will keep it locked up safely in their store.

The Scottish Borders are big on history, too, what with William Wallace being made guardian of the Scots at Selkirk and Sir Walter Scott settling down at Abbotsford (30 and 40 minutes away). The ruined abbeys of Melrose, Dryburgh and Jedburgh are all within a 50-minute drive and it's about an hour to Floors and Hermitage Castles.
