Scottish Borders

©2022 Gazetteer for Scotland


A location in the Yarrow Valley of the Scottish Borders, Eldinhope lies 8 miles (13 km) south of Innerleithen. Most obvious is a sizeable farm, with a substantial stone-built farmhouse, together with Eldinhope Knowe, which rises to 406m (1332 feet) to the east, and Eldinhope Middle Hill to the southeast. Also to the southeast are the remains of Eldinhope Tower, which was a property of the Scott family. The Eldinhope Burn descends past the tower and Eldinhope Cottage to flow into Altrieve Lake, which in turn enters the Yarrow Water a short distance to the northeast.
