Cringletie House is in the ideal location for experiencing rural Scotland during the day, before heading into Edinburgh for the evening.

The real Scotland starts right at the border with England and stretches out all the way up to Edinburgh. The whole Borders' area is a paradise for walkers, and is steeped in history. There are many National Trust and Historic Scotland properties, providing for many hours of all sorts of delight. A perfect day out is the Borders Abbey Route.

Plenty To Do

With a wealth of activities available for guests staying at Cringletie House, you'll never be short of something to do! From relaxing walks in the grounds and garden, pitch & put, outdoor chess and archery on site - to a host of country pursuits and outdoor activities nearby, including walking, mountain biking, canoeing, golf and fishing.


The Scottish Borders have everything for the angler - whether you've fished for years or want to try it for the first time.

From salmon fishing on the River Tweed itself, to sea trout fishing on its tributaries; from fishing for rainbow trout in local lochs to sea fishing off the Berwickshire coast, there are plenty options to choose from.

Helicopter Rides

Treating your loved ones to a helicopter flight is a lot cheaper than you might think. They will be picked up from a surprise location, taken on a tour of the local area and then dropped off at Cringletie. This makes for a particularly special arrival at Cringletie for wedding couples!

Mountain Biking

Glentress Forest is a mountain biking Mecca, deep in the heart of the stunning Tweed Valley. The biking experience here includes Green, Blue, Red or Black graded trails, as well as a magnificent multi-graded free-ride area.

In the unlikely event that Glentress fails to meet your thirst for biking exhilaration, you are only a short hop from Innerleithen's famous Red Bull down-hill and cross country trails.

Game Shooting

As well as target shooting and clays available on the Cringletie estate, there is a wide range of game shooting, pheasant, grouse, wildfowl and deer stalking opportunities available within easy reach of Cringletie Hotel, depending on the season.

Walking The Borders

The Borders is one of Europe's most beautiful unspoilt regions. There are rolling hills, mature forests, superb river valleys and interesting towns and villages. Each season brings its own pleasures, beauty and colours.

There are a number of experienced local walking specialists in the Scottish Borders, should you fancy a more organised tour or some knowledgeable company along the way. The team at Cringletie will be happy to put you in touch with them.
