The Scottish Borders region

The South of Scotland and the area around the Scottish boarder is home to a variety of interesting local pubs and restaurants, local butchers, bakers, salmon smokeries etc. There are many colourful Border towns and villages for shopping and dining out. Romantic hill country, with rivers, lochs and grazing animals. Wild birds and mammals. Ever changing skies. Quiet roads and genuine people, local produce. The region is renowned for great hill walking along the Pennine way, Dere Street, Southern Upland Way, the Abbeys Way.


Kelso was described by Sir Walter Scott as 'The most beautiful, if not the most romantic town in Scotland'. It has a glorious setting, nestling in the Cheviots, with the River Tweed sweeping round the backs of pretty Georgian cottages and the unusual octagonal parish church. The 18th century cobbled square and handsome townhouses give Kelso the elegant air of a French market town. Today the cobbled square has a wonderful collection of shops...cashmere, finest tweeds, pottery, , Tweedside Tackle, Lee's Butcher and delicatessen, Wylie the butcher , fish shope, many clothes and shoe shops and a unique assortment of gift shops.

There are reminders of the towns magnificent medieval past in the ruins of its Romanesque Abbey, built for David I in 1128. It was one of the biggest abbeys in the area before it was razed to the ground in 1545 during Scotlands rough wooing by Henry VIII. Floors Castle is the largest inhabited castle in Scotland and you can wander through spectacular staterooms filled with priceless European paintings, tapestries and furnishings.

For action - new tennis courts, the Tweed cycle way, golf, rugby, racing, horse-riding, curling, ice-skating, fishing, walking, beaches.

For relaxing - several beauty salons, gardens, historic houses, the Border Abbeys, the quaint Roxy cinema.

For nourishment - several good pubs including the Queenshead bistro and the Cobbles, and a superb wine bar, Oscars, are all found in Kelso. Further out of town there is the wonderful Caddy Mans and the Teviot Smokery coffee shop on the Jedburgh Road.

"This is our ideal holiday cottage"

The cottage is very comfortable and has all we need. We've been coming here for years.
Great location only a mile or so from town (pubs, restaurants, shops and excellent local brewery!) but well off the beaten track. My daughter is horse crazy so there's plenty on the farm to keep her entertained. Great walking country. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Favourite things - log stove in the autumn evenings and, of course, the horses. Least favourite thing - rural internet and mobile speeds (but it is the country after all!)
