Set on the banks of the famous River Tweed and in the heart of
mountain bike country our hotel in Peebles is well worth a
Macdonald Cardrona Hotel Golf & Spa boasts salmon fishing
rights and a magnificent Dave Thomas designed 18 hole championship
golf course making this the ideal spot for outdoor activities as
well as offering a calm and relaxing atmosphere for those seeking
some rest and recuperation.
Peebles itself is a hive of artistic activity having been
awarded Creative Place in 2014. Wander the medieval streets, alleys
and squares or browse the many local independent shops and
galleries before sampling one of the fine cafes available. In
the summer months The Borders are alive with The Ridings. Peebles
celebrates in style with its own Beltane Festival with the locals
proudly joining in and riding through the streets on horseback.
If mountain biking is your thing then you'll be ideally situated
as Glentress is connected to the hotel via the Tweed Valley Railway
Path which runs through the golf course. Only a few miles away you
can try the more thrilling black runs at Innerleithen. Thrill
seekers will also love Go Ape Tree Top Adventure where you can zip
wire through the canopy of Glentress Forest.
Finally, if you are spending some quality time in the area or
for a more relaxing day visit Traquair House. This is the
oldest and most romantic inhabited house in Scotland, where they
even brew their own beer.
