Eldinhope is set high up in the Yarrow valley, it is beautiful location has stunning views and it is very remote.

It was the home of Walter & Janet Dalgleish and their family. One of their daughters (Catherine) gave birth to a son (William Murray) here in 1848.

The original buildings were replaced by this cottage ~ late 19thC.

Comment: .


  1. At the time of occupation Eldinhope appears to only apply to the cottage(s) - whereas today Eldinhope/Eldinhope Farm is the name given to the large farm and house across the road and the new cottage is known as Eldinhope Cottage.
  2. Based on the 18xx[TBC] census and birth of William Murray in 1848. Occupation could include several years either side of this date.
  3. The existing buildings were erected after this period of occupation.

Thanks to the occupants of Eldinhope Cottage for information about the buildings and local area in June 2010
