Fowie Cottage has a superb rural location approximately 3 miles to the southwest of Stow.

Stow is an attractive small village at the foot of the Lammermuir Hills on the A7 which links Edinburgh with Galashiels and Carlisle. Village life is complimented by the scenic beauty of its location and local amenities include a Doctor's surgery, modern primary school, post office/general store and tea room/café. The
village has an active Community Council along with other groups including the Toddlers Club and Pipe Band.

A wider range of amenities, including shops, large supermarkets and a secondary school are found in nearby Galashiels. Galashiels also has a good range of sporting and recreational facilities.

The re-opening of the Waverley rail link between Galashiels and Edinburgh, which is due in 2015, will see a station in Stow and therefore enhance the commute to the city.


From Stow cross the Gala Water and pass the new primary school before veering left onto the minor public road down the west side of the Gala Water. Drive south for approximately one mile, turning right immediately after crossing a bridge over a burn (Lugate Water) and drive up the farm road to Lugate Farm Steading. The steading is approximately half a mile from the public road. Veer left on reaching the steading and pass through the steading, keeping right after passing a Colt bungalow at the top. Take the track signed "The Lodge", keeping right at the fork immediately past the steading, and Fowie Cottage is approximately one mile from the steading.

Fowie Cottage is an attractive traditional detached cottage in a scenic rural location.

The cottage has electric space heating and there are working fires in each of the sitting room and living room. The useful integral store below the sitting room appears capable of incorporation into the main living accommodation, if desired, subject to consents.

Fowie Cottage sits within spacious garden grounds which include grass, woodland and decking.
