West Linton - Located in Peeblesshire in the Scottish Borders, West Linton is the modern face of the settlement that has been in existence here since the Iron Age. The name is believed to be taken from the Saxon word ‘Lin’ which means water or pools that appear in marshes and ‘ton’ which means town or settlement, making Linton the town by the water. West Linton cottages offer accommodation in the heart of village life. The cottages in West Linton are aimed at providing guests with the perfect home away from home accommodation, allowing them to relax into their surroundings.

Remains and Ruins

The hills that surround the village have revealed signs of Iron Age forts, and during a drought in 1991 Bronze Age burials were discovered and excavated, the contents of which are currently on display in the Museum of Scotland. Apartments in West Linton are comfortable and offer access to all of the local amenities. All of the holiday accommodation in West Linton offers you the chance to get out and explore, take to the hills and visit the archaeological sites, or visit other border towns nearby. It is said that King Edward I of England rode through the town on his journey to Ayr. The region was at one time famous for its silver and lead mining in the hills above the village.

Industrial Advances

The 19th century saw lots of changes in West Linton with the textile industry providing jobs such as weaving. Work was also to be found in the breweries and tanneries of the area, the leather being turned into boots sold in the town. Holiday rentals in West Linton have a long history as tourism to the area began with the introduction of the railways and guesthouses soon developed. These days the holiday homes in West Linton are ideal for families and couples who want to spend time here.
