It is some years since there have been bees kept at Bemersyde but they are now back. As well as the flowers and the lime trees in the garden the swathes of gorse on Scott’s View will provide nectar and pollen.

  • Amazing house!   Had a great time exploring the building and the area.  Really enjoyed learning to fly fish on the Tweed.

  • A fantastic few days with great friends to celebrate the dawn of a New Year.  Bemersyde was the perfect setting, fascinating architecture and history, glorious.  Comfy beds and the wonderful Margaret made us feel truly at home. Thank you! Next time we must try shooting and fishing.
