Historic Accommodation in the Scottish Borders

A very beautiful region of Scotland, steeped in history. The many castles of this area stand testament to it’s turbulent past. By contrast, visit the four great Border abbeys of Melrose, Kelso, Dryburgh and Jedburgh and experience the sense of peace that still clings to these mellowed ruins.

This area of Scotland has many associations with Sir Walter Scott. Scott’s View of the Eildon Hills near Melrose, and the 16th century Smailholm Tower, near Kelso, are two examples. Scott spent his childhood nearby.
