Burnside is one of a group of four houses lying to the east of Hartwoodburn Farmhouse and forms part of a small residential group in a fine rural setting. A small burn bounds the north and east sides of the property. Burnside enjoys fine outlooks over the countryside yet is only two miles from the historic town of Selkirk. The Borders can offer everything that one could wish for in the way of sport, culture, scenery and, above all, a splendid way of life. There are good transport links both north and south to either Edinburgh or Newcastle. The Ettrick Valley provides exceptional sporting opportunities including fishing, shooting, golf, riding, walking and cycling.
Burnside is situated close to local amenities in Selkirk which has arguably the most impressive setting of the Border towns with the surrounding heather clad hills and its setting on the Ettrick Water. The larger town of Galashiels is nearby and offers a wide range of services including two supermarkets, hotels, retail parks and specialist shops, restaurants and professional services, as well as tennis, a golf club and rugby club. Horse riding is a Border tradition with the famous Selkirk Common Ridings taking place in June. There is direct off road access on horseback to miles of bridleways and trails through forestry and open countryside.
Excellent state education is available in Selkirk and Galashiels, as well as private preparatory schooling at St. Mary's in Melrose. A wide range of private schools can be found in Edinburgh.
