St Mary's Loch is situated 72 miles south of Edinburgh in the Scottish Borders on the A708 road between Selkirk and Moffat.
Come and enjoy a relaxing walk and explore the beautiful Yarrow Valley around the Border's largest natural loch. The loch is right at the historic hunting ground Ettrick Forest, a place where William Wallace would rally his allies to come together to raid the nearby English settlements. It is also a perfect setting for visitors to book holiday accommodation and take part in activities such as cycling, walking, sailing, watersports and fishing.
The area is well known for its natural beauty, picturesque views and history, a popular place for literary figures such as James Hogg and Sir Walter Scott. You can also explore the ruins of the old Pele towers which were used to protect people against Border attacks, the Ettrick Valley statue where James Hogg is buried and also St Mary's Kirkyard, a historic location where William Wallace was named Guardian of Scotland.
