Bowhill House and Country Park : Michelin's recommendations
On high ground between Yarrow and Ettrick, Bowhill was the border home of the Scotts of Buccleuch. The property was once part of Ettrick forest, which Robert Bruce gave to the Douglas family in 1322. Then, in 1450, the forest came back to the Crown for a century or so, before finally becoming the property of the Scott family, which had become the Montagu Douglas Scott further to several marriages. It houses many treasures, including some exceptional paintings.
