"An atmospheric 16th century Borders peel tower; I love the feel of this castle and it is a great place to host events. The tower is hidden in the trees with a large lawn and is located just 10 minutes from Smiths at Gretna Green. There are two very nice bedrooms; this is a great family-run property."
