The Scottish Borders Area

Dignity is situated in a secluded valley 6 miles from Galashiels and 8 miles from Selkirk, in the Central Borders. It carries a sense of peace and seclusion, and yet are so close to the many attractions within the Borders.

Dignity makes the ideal base from which to explore all that this beautiful area has to offer, whether it be the world class fishing on the nearby river Tweed, a round of golf on one of the many golf courses, or a day spent at Glentress (just over the hill and one of the best mountain bike trails in the country). For those requiring something less energetic, the Borders has an abundance of country houses and castles to visit and explore, with Bowhill and Abbotsford both within 10 miles.
