Your B&B Hosts
Your hosts here are David and Caroline Wilson and their family, along with two dogs, three horses, a few sheep and one tortoise. Caroline is a professional cook. Breakfasts are of the highest standard, while packed lunches and evening meals can be provided on request. Call ahead if you have specific dietary requirements. The emphasis is on the best ingredients simply prepared. The eight-acre smallholding is particularly productive, so ingredients are often very local indeed.
Braefield is just 15 minuites from the M74 motorway, while nearby Biggar is on the A702, the main route to Edinburgh from the south. But it's far more than a simple stop-off on the way to the Highlands. From the B&B it's an hour's drive to either Glasgow or Edinburgh, Biggar is a busy, thriving market town four miles away that is full of excellent small businesses and places to eat, while it's a half hour drive to Peebles, a gorgeous Borders market town on the Tweed that is also home to Glentress, with its bike trails and canopy adventures. The World Heritage site of New Lanark and the Falls of Clyde are nearby. There are great walks from the door and some of Scotland's best fishing is a few hundred yards away on the Clyde, with day trout licenses available.
