Activities & Attractions
Ellemford is an ideal destination for walkers and country sports, especially shooting. With over twenty different drives Ellemford provides excellent sport over one or two days including pheasant, partridge, grouse and duck. Bag sizes can be arranged with the estate to your own requirements. We can also organise Roe stalking, accompanied by the estate's gamekeeper, and clay-pigeon shooting is available locally. Walking, fishing and shooting parties have access to a drying / boot room and a strong room for guns and ammunition.
For fishing parties, prime Tweed fishing is within a 30 minute drive from the house. Local fly fishing can be arranged with the head keeper (at additional cost) on a two mile double bank stretch of the River Whiteadder which runs through the estate. Some of Scotland's most challenging golf courses are only an hour drive from the estate, including the Links courses at North Berwick, Luffness, Gullane and Muirfield.
The beautiful sandy beaches at St. Abbs and North Berwick are perfect for walking, swimming, sandcastles and beach cricket, and nature-lovers will be charmed by nearby St. Abbs, a designated Nature Reserve, and the breeding and nesting grounds for thousands of seabirds.
Ellemford is 6 miles from Duns, an attractive market town with a good range of local shops, cafes and pubs and a museum dedicated to local motor racing legend Jim Clark. Also nearby is Manderston, said to be the perfect example of an Edwardian country house and home to the only silver-staircase in the world. And of course, Edinburgh is just an hour’s, very pretty, drive away.
