The Insch is set down from the charming church in the village of Tweedsmuir, about 36 miles south of Edinburgh on the A701. The house sits in about 8.3 acres of grazing land and gardens with the River Tweed running along the northern edge of the property. The surrounding hills form part of the spectacular scenery of the Upper Tweed Valley with the dramatic hills between Broadlaw and Hartfell and the Talla and Fruid Reservoirs.
Tweedsmuir is a thriving rural community and there is an excellent village hall. The nearest shopping is in Broughton, a small village about 8 miles north on the A701 which also has a good primary school serving the area, a garage, a tea room and a renowned local brewery. More comprehensive shopping can be found in Biggar (about 14 miles) or Moffat (about 15 miles). Edinburgh with all the facilities of a capital city is about 36 miles north. The nearest station with mainline connections is at Lockerbie (31 miles) to the south.
The area is favoured by many outdoor pursuits enthusiasts for its excellent facilities with extensive hill walking and challenging mountain biking with dedicated trails at Glentress, Peebles and Innerleithen. There are a variety of good golf courses in the area and sporting fishing on the River Tweed.
