Cairnhill Farm is located in an excellent mixed farming area approximately 1 mile south of Duns and 11 miles north of Coldstream and the River Tweed. The farm is beautifully situated in rolling Borders countryside flecked with woodland and commands magnificent views across the Blackadder to the Cheviots to the south east. Cairnhill enjoys considerable privacy, being set on a minor classified road, yet lies within a mile of both the A6105 and A6112 which provides excellent access to both Edinburgh (47 miles) and Newcastle upon Tyne (76 miles), both of which have international airports. Additionally, there is a main line railway station at Berwick upon Tweed on the east coast route with direct connections to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London.

The sale of Cairnhill provides the opportunity to purchase an easily accessible, small farm affording considerable privacy in a lovely area.
