Surrounded by extensive mature gardens and woodland, Rutherford House offers all the comforts you would expect from a small country house. This historic property, which retains many original features, dates back to circa 1800 when it was once a Coach House for travellers going between the North and the South. The house sits between the villages of Carlops to the North and West Linton to the South.

We are only a mile and a half from the beautiful conservation village of West Linton, where you will find most amenities, from the pharmacy to the local post office and village pub. We are surrounded by many beautiful walks being at the foot of the Pentland Hills Regional Park, and for golf enthusiasts we sit between 2 golf courses.

You will find Rutherford Castle golf course within walking distance from us, with it’s recently rebuilt club house, and West Linton golf course a 5 minute drive away. Whether you are seasoned walker, cyclist, golfer, or wish to escape for a little peace and tranquility – Rutherford House is your ideal base.

We had a lovely 3 night stay at the exceptional Rutherford House at our pre-festival visit to Edinburgh. Just outside Edinburgh, this is a beautiful, peaceful countryside retreat. Our hosts were so welcoming. Thank you. Highly recommended.
