Aikwood Tower


Highlands and Islands, Scotland

Aikwood Tower has witnessed a great deal of history and adventure throughout the ages. It was once the home of the notorious Border Reivers, who defended “The debatable lands” between Scotland and England. You can now enjoy it. As you enter via the west door and enter the stark, unforgiving walls, you’ll be astounded by the striking interior, which features modern boutique accommodations and five-star furnishings. The focal point of the space is the enormous fire in the main hall, and each of the five bedrooms has luxurious furnishings including plush Duxiana beds and private bathrooms.

Some of Scotland’s best walking, cycling, shooting, fishing, and horseback riding can be found in the surrounding countryside. The tower is bordered by undulating hills, forest walks, and the Ettrick and Yarrow Valleys in the heart of the Scottish Borders. After your exploration, you can unwind in the great hall’s luxury and even make use of the private chef’s services, which are offered to visitors. You will be enchanted by a stay at this most lovely of vacation spots if you appreciate being outside.
