Kelso is arguably the prettiest town in the Borders with cobbled streets and a large market place. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants to sample Scottish hospitality and many interesting shops to browse. Within walking distance is Floors Castle, Kelso Race Course, Kelso golf course and Springwood Park home to the Border Union agricultural show and many other events throughout the year. You'll never be lost for things to do and see in The Borders.
