THE owner of a West Linton mansion, known for its weekend parties, may have let it for the final time last weekend.

Greenloaning, a nine-bedroomed house, with a gym, hot-tub and cinema room, gained notoriety after weekend hen and stag parties of up to 30 people caused consternation with neighbours.

The property belongs to Edinburgh cinema impresario Mike Cameron, who owns the Dominion in Newbattle Terrace.

The parties made national headlines, particularly during the pandemic, when it was alleged guests did not follow social distancing rules.

At the time, Mr Cameron’s solicitor refuted those allegations, saying: “The complaints alleged are not accepted nor justified.

“Mr Cameron, in letting the property, has always and will continue to abide by the COVID-19 rules and principles for self-catering accommodation.”

Since 2018, Mr Cameron has been pursued through the courts by Scottish Borders Council (SBC) – with a ban on short-term lets eventually being upheld by the Court of Session earlier this year.

On August 18 a member of SBC’s legal team stated: “With a view to bringing matters to an end, the owners of Greenloaning, through their solicitors, have entered into an agreement with Scottish Borders Council, that will see all use for short-term commercial letting come to an end by September 18.”

The SBC spokesperson added: “The court action taken by Scottish Borders Council against the property owners has also been settled.

“Scottish Borders Council does, however, reserve the right to pursue any further unauthorised use of the property for short-term commercial letting.”

The solicitors acting for Mr Cameron were contacted for a comment.
