Newstead is one of the most sought after villages in the Scottish Borders and is reputedly the oldest continually inhabited settlement in Scotland. Former inhabitants include the Roman Army and the monks and masons who built Melrose Abbey. The village has an excellent, central location within the Borders and lies between the Eildon Hills and the River Tweed. Newstead has a busy village hall and is within easy reach of Melrose with its fine range of shops, hotels, restaurants, sporting and recreational facilities.

Newstead has good road links with the principal Borders towns and lies within easy reach of the A68 which provides good vehicular access both north to Edinburgh and south to the northeast of England. The Tweedbank terminal for the Borders rail link with Edinburgh is less than 3 miles from Newstead.

Rathlin Cottage is an attractive detached bungalow which enjoys attractive outlooks over the Tweed Valley and has been significantly improved and extended since construction.

The versatile and well appointed family sized accommodation includes a spacious living room/dining/kitchen and benefits from gas fired central heating along with a stove in the sitting room. Windows are double glazed and both kitchen and bathroom fittings are modern.

A fine feature of the cottage is its spacious garden which is child/dog safe an enjoys a good degree of privacy. The garden includes lawns, borders and paving along with gravelled off road parking for several cars. A further two off road car parking spaces just outside the enclosed garden belong with the property.
