A traditional, stone-built inn with letting rooms in the Scottish Borders, built in 1701, has been put on the market.

Property agent Christie & Co has been appointed to sell the Horse and Hound Country Inn, a pub with letting rooms in the village of Bonchester Bridge.

The Horse & Hound Country Inn is on the market at a leasehold asking price of £100,000, and annual rent of £27,000.

Christie & Co noted the inn, which is close to the border with England, is popular with tourists visiting the area’s attractions such as Bonchester Bridge Caravan Park and various biking and walking trails.
