A former farm, the visitor centre now hosts exhibitions and events in addition to a gift shop and tea room. Products are from local farmers, artisans and producers with a picnic area available. Located nearby some of the most beautiful walking trails in the Scottish Borders, you can make your way up to Waterloo Monument, although the tower itself is not open to the public.
