Elspinhope is a single level Detached Cottage with a high standard of comfort and facilities. Beautiful views from every window looking out over the surrounding hills and burn (SSSI). You don\'t need to leave the cottage to enjoy the landscape or to relax away from it all. Watch Red Squirrels on our Trail Camera or if you\'re lucky through the window.
The cottage with it\'s own enclosed garden ground & woodland is located on Cossarshill Farm, a working 1,400 acre hill sheep farm by Ettrick Water.
