A magical day out for the whole family…

Deep in the heart of the Scottish Borders, beside winding glens and heathery hills, an enchanting country estate awaits you. And at its centre is a magnificent country home reflected in a loch with rooftops framed by rich forestry.

Welcome to Bowhill.

This majestic House and its Estate have been the centre of life in this rural oasis for more than 200 years. Bowhill enjoys a regal seat in the heart of the ancient royal hunting forest of Ettrick and is blessed with an abundance of glorious scenery. For outdoor activities, family days out, House tours full of history and art, weddings, private events and field sports, you’ll find this is a truly magical place. Make it top of your list of places to see in the Borders and you won’t be disappointed.
