Rod grew up at Roeburnscar exploring the river and woods with his dog. We now live further into Backsbottom Farm half a mile away through the woods. We farm this beautiful valley organically with sheep and heritage apple varieties. Our main aim is to increase the wildlife diversity of the farm.
Jane McArthur purchased this cottage in 1957
Rod's mother lived here at Roeburnscar until 2010 After 18 months of renovations we are now able to share this special peaceful place with others.
Three of the bedrooms have outside doors leading out onto the verandah with ever changing views of the River Roeburn and woodlands. The flat is ideal for the grandparents who want to have both privacy and closeness to the rest of the family staying in the main part of the house.
