Public Transport

We do enjoy a degree of public transport! Our nearest train station is in Carlisle (24 miles). There is a regular bus service from there via the X95 bus to Edinburgh, which stops in Langholm. Details of timings and stops are available via Border Buses.

Once you reach Langholm, there is a local 124 bus which travels to Eskdalemuir. Details of times are available on the Houston Coaches website. The driver is very friendly and will drop you off by the “Hawick 21” road sign. It’s just a short walk from there to our cottages.


Burnfoot Holiday cottages are located 4 miles from Langholm. When approaching Langholm on the A7 either from the south or north, take the B709 signposted to Eskdalemuir. After approx 4 miles, you will sign post stating “Hawick 21”. Please take this turning and proceed until you reach a bridge. At this point take a left and head straight on until you reach us. The cottages are signposted and there is ample car parking.

Please note that there is limited Phone Signal in the Scottish Borders, so prepare in advance if you are looking to rely on phones for navigation.
