For nearly 600 years Borthwick Castle has overlooked the gently rolling hills on the edge of the romantic Scottish Borders. One can easily imagine that Mary Queen of Scots looked from her bedchamber window onto a very similar landscape in the 16th Century.
The Castle's long and illustrious history has romance and drama and the walls still bear the battle-scars of Cromwell's cannon.
The castle returned to a domestic residence in early 2013 having been a hotel for 40 years.
It is with regret that the hotel had to close in February 2013.
The website remains to show some of the history of the castle.
