Reservoir House home swap

Located next to a Scottish Water reservoir, the house boasts spectacular views over the Moorfoot Hills, with opportunities to row, sail or swim just a few metres away. A large country house with a tower room and many hidden-away nooks and crannies, this is a unique property and a cosy home with open fires in the drawing room and the TV snug, as well as an aga (country oven) to cook on. It is just 30-40 minutes drive away from the centre of Edinburgh and so offers the very best of what Scotland has to offer - stunning natural beauty as well as easy access to the historic capital city.

About the location

Between the Midlothian and Borders regions, the area is mainly farmland with rolling hills and many fields of sheep. Near to the Moorfoot and Pentland hills, great places to hike, walk and even go skiing on an artificial ski slope. Also near to many small picturesque rural villages in the area near the reservoir.
