The Kelso / Ednam area
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.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
From Kelso, head towards Ednam on the B6461, passing the racecourse on your left hand side and the Thomson monument on the hill to your right.
After 2 miles you will reach Ednam over an old stone bridge – straight away turn right past the bus shelter – it’s a very bad bend, be careful! Continue up the hill past the farm cottages on the left, followed by Cliftonhill farm on the right.
Plum Braes barn is signposted at the far end of the farm steading, on the right.
For Edmonston, keep going past the farm and up the hill – it is on the top of the hill on the right.

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!)
