Barns Tower, a romantic castle by the River Tweed.

1 Bedroom , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Kirkton Manor, Borders, Scotland
Barns Tower is a 15th century mini-castle. The perfect romantic getaway, nestled in the Upper Tweed Valley, near the River Tweed, and 4 miles from the bustling market town of Peebles. Roaring log fires, flag stone floors, an ancient iron 'yett' gate, are complimented by a well equipped kitchen, wifi and a luxurious superking sized bed.
Stunning walks along the Tweed, or up into the surrounding hills. The famous 'John Buchan Way' goes past the Tower, and the walk to Peebles is a charming 40 minute meander along the banks of the river.
World class biking at nearby Glentress, great Museums in Peebles, fabulous gardens at Dawyck, and award-winning chocolates from Ruth Hinks, are just some of the great things to explore in the area.
