Spend a night at the award winning Scottish Inn, Buccleuch Arms Hotel (86% on Tripadvisor) located in the Scottish Borders region. I found a great deal on Travelbird.co.uk that treats you to a country escape with a 34% discount.
The area has an important historical meaning as many battles have been fought there. The famous William Wallace had his army deployed on the fields, as well as Henry VIII who raged across this area too. Even before that the Romans have fought battles against the Scots and Picts to spread their belief. There are numerous traces that are still clearly visible for the historic and cultural significance of this area. The castles and abbeys were witness to those happenings and got turned into museums that educate you about the local history. Follow the footpaths that lead you along the hills and valleys or go mountain biking to explore the outer surroundings.
In this area, in Moffat you find your also historical hotel, Buccleuch Arms, that dates back to 1836. It belongs to the best Inns in Scotland and won the award of being the Scottish Inn of the Year! It is a homey and rustic place combined with modern elements that will make you feel comfortable once you step inside. And of course the wonderful staff will do anything to keep you content and welcome you with a bottle of wine. Stay in the Superior Room with a king-sized bed and finest linens. In your room you find an en-suite bathroom. Have breakfast in the morning before you embark on your day’s activities. At their bistro you can get yourself some snacks but I would also recommend you to dine at their restaurant. They serve amazing Angus Stack, risotto and also have delicious vegetarian options. If you want to bring your motorcycle along then look forward to some fantastic trips to the windy streets. It’s quite popular for that. So start packing your bags for this short trip to Scotland!
