About Carol

We have been providing 5 star luxury accommodation at Airhouses since the end of 2006. In 2012 we decided to build The Capercaillie as we were having lots of requests for larger properties. We run a 633 acres organic beef farm with Aberdeen Angus cattle. In addition we have lots of "pets" for our guests to enjoy. Llama, Alpacas, Shetland Ponies, Hens, Bantams, Pigs and a small family of Shetland Cows with their calves. We also have a lovely Highland Calf, Apple.

Carol purchased this chateau / country house in 2012

Why Carol chose Scottish Borders

We have toured parts of the USA in 2010 and had stayed in some beautiful properties in Georgia and Sedona. These properties formed the basis of our design for the Capercaillie.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Large bedrooms with dressing areas and gorgeous bathrooms. Stunning views from the hot tub and lots of beautiful walks. Start making memories as soon as you approach this lovely house
