Through the forest and up to the moors
What we like:
a ranger from the nearby Bowhill Estate will drive you up through the ancient Ettrick Valley forest and up onto the hills for spectacular views. Round off the tour at the ruined fifteenth century Newark Tower, a former stronghold of the Douglas clan.
In their own words:
"One of our expert Rangers ... will drive you through the stunning designed landscape surrounding the House. They’ll take you up through the remains of the Ancient Ettrick Valley Forest which leads out to spectacular views of the Scottish Borders landscape. There are plenty of opportunities for photos before driving on to the ruins of the fifteenth century Newark Tower, the former Douglas Stronghold."
Good to know
They'll pick up Five Turrets from the door.
