Welcome to Claymore, the ideal setting whether you are a walker, cyclist, golfer or just want a relaxing break.
We think the Claymore can offer you excellent value for money. We are located in the centre of Duns in the Scottish Borders; within 5 minutes you are out in the middle of beautiful countryside.
Our main attraction is our dining room, which is decorated as a 1950's American Diner and not what you would expect to find in the Scottish countryside.
Our bedrooms are themed in their design, one furnished like a Scottish country castle another with Titanic memorabilia and our third room with an Oriental theme. The bedrooms have coffee/tea making facilities, TV and DVD. Families are welcome and we are a totally non smoking establishment.
We offer a full Scottish Breakfast and can also arrange a 3 course homemade evening meal. We have a snack menu which is available until 7pm and can also provide filled rolls for a packed lunch.
