Fodor's Expert Review Windlestraw Lodge

9 Galashiels Rd., Walkerburn, Innerleithen, The Scottish Borders, EH43 6AA, Scotland

This elegant bed-and-breakfast and restaurant occupies a grand Edwardian country home surrounded by extensive gardens. Above the village of Walkerburn, between Innerleithen and Galashiels, the house has views that embrace the rolling green landscape of the Tweed Valley. It's a perfect place simply to relax, and can serve as a convenient base for touring the nearby abbeys or the cycling and walking paths of the surrounding hills. The fine-dining restaurant is worth a trip; the five-course tasting menu is £65 per person.
