Following an extensive refurbishment, SCHLOSS Roxburghe opened its doors to the public on the 1st June. With 20 exquisitely designed rooms and suites available to choose from, as well as charming historical fireplace rooms oozing in style and elegance, SCHLOSS Roxburghe makes the perfect location for a country retreat or special occasion. The extensive investment will also see the addition of an extension that will add circa 60 bedrooms, as well as a new restaurant, extensive spa facilities, swimming pool and purpose built banqueting suite, creating a true destination in the Scottish Borders.

SCHLOSS Roxburghe invites visitors not just to relax, but also to go outside and get active. There are numerous possibilities offered on site, from the Championship Golf Course, to our very own trout pond and fishing beat, not to mention the Roxburghe Shooting School that offers a range of activities including archery, tomahawk throwing and clay pigeon shooting. In addition to we also offer shooters SCHLOSS Country Sports. A competent partner that covers a wide range of outdoor activities combined with stylish accommodation. For passionate hunters, we offer plenty of variety. For experienced or beginner anglers, we offer fishing instruction from a former world champion.

The Scottish Borders is steeped in history and populated with distinctive natural landmarks and historic buildings. These combine to create an idyllic rural setting with beautiful and romantic villages to explore and discover. SCHLOSS Roxburghe actively encourages guests to explore the local area and visit various outlets such as cashmere factories and distilleries.

An increasing number of people seek to live their lives more consciously, placing emphasis on healthy eating and, wherever possible, using sustainably sourced products. At SCHLOSS Roxburghe this is not a trend, but a way of life. Our commitment to the environment and sustainability is incorporated into our day-to-day operations. Know where it comes from: SCHLOSS Roxburghe is committed to this philosophy, and guests can experience the highest provenance of food from farm to plate.

Our team of chefs actively forage the grounds of the estate for as much produce as possible. They then bring it to life with culinary delights inspired by a passion for Scotland’s abundance of fresh produce, meat, fish and game. If the product is not available locally we will always source wherever possible from Scotland, making the best use of Scotland's natural larder and using the freshest local produce. The focus of the food concept is 'estate to plate', with full food provenance shown on all our dishes. We source our game from the estate and to take the concept to the next level we can provide guests with the full experience of ‘estate to plate’ where a guest can see the journey from the hunt, through to the kitchen and finally to the table.

In Spring and Summer Elderflower from the estate is used to create syrups, ice cream and sorbet, in Autumn and Winter elderberries are sourced on the state and used for vinegars and syrups. And for something a little special, Damascene rose is used to create a magnificent rose jam. From mushrooms to wild garlic, we make the best use possible of the produce that grows naturally on the estate.

As a business that welcomes guests from all over the world, it is our duty to show and share with the world what Scotland has to offer.

Additionally, we support the local community in employing local people across the estate. In fact, one of our employees was approached by a young man selling tomatoes from the local area and we have supported him in his endeavour. We also provide education and stages (internships) for young people who want to progress in the culinary industry and learn about our food concepts and philosophy.
