The Hirsel

Scottish Borders | Coldstream | Park | ★★

[Hirsel Lake, The Hirsel]

The Hirsel is a large country park based around a private Georgian stately home to the west of Coldstream, and makes a rewarding spot for a stroll at any time of year. Hirsel Lake is the highlight, with various species of ducks, geese and swans visible from hides on the south bank and breaks in vegetation on the east side, especially over winter. The main car park is at The Homestead: an attractive courtyard surrounded by arts and craft shops, a tea room and the interesting estate museum.
