Dating back to the 18th century, it was originally the Dower House for the Philiphaugh Estate and retains plenty of period character. Sitting in four acres of woodland grounds and gardens, the hotel is on the outskirts of the historic town of Selkirk.

Philipburn Hotel is around a one hour drive from Edinburgh and Selkirk is on the scenic route of the Tweedbank to Edinburgh railway line.

More traditional options might include the steak, ale and mushroom pie or the beer-battered cod served with peas and chips.

There is an extensive range of vegetarian dishes and the kitchen can happily cater for special dietary requirements.

Out & about
