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, Honour Murray, Tweedside Tackle, Mitchells Butcher and Delicatessen, 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.
