Residential Building Plot
This residential building plot has an attractive location on the northern edge of Westruther, at the junction of Edgar Road and the minor public road which runs north from the village before cutting west and eventually heading back to the A897 via Pyatshaw. The existing building, which would be demolished, has a southerly aspect to the front.
Westruther is a picturesque Berwickshire village in a fine rural location and with a good range of local amenities including a primary school, church, village hall and popular inn (the Old Thistle Inn). A wider range of amenities is found in each of Greenlaw, Lauder and Duns and secondary schooling is at the highly regarded Earlston High School. Westruther has good road links with the main Borders towns and is within commuting distance of Edinburgh.
