Scottish Borders Tour Between Scotland and England Lies hidden Beauty

We will begin our adventure Visiting Rosslyn Chapel which is one of my personal favourite places and dates back to the 14th Century and was made famous by the Da Vinci Code.<br><br>After a brief drive we find ourselves in the beautiful countryside of the Scottish Borders.<br>Next on our agenda is Melrose Abbey you will have the opportunity to visit this magnificent ruin. The heart of Robert the Bruce one of the most famous Scots is also buried here.<br><br>We will then give the senses an overload and take in one of the most magnificent views in Scotland at Scott's View.<br><br>Floors Castle, the largest inhabited castle in Scotland and family home of the Duke of Roxburghe. Built for the 1st Duke of Roxburghe in 1721, what you see is an evolving story of a house and gardens and outstanding views.<br><br>We will then visit Abbotsford House, home to the literary genius Sir Walter Scott. Today the house serves as a museum and monument to its famous occupant.

The Abbey is worth seeing. The riverside walk is really enjoyable with a tarmac path as well as grassy areas with seating. But the footpaths throughout Kelso and especially in the market square are filthy due to dog poo - lots of it - PICK IT UP FOLKS !! For that reason alone I don’t recommend the shopping area - watch where you put your feet.

This is a self guided site. Plaques dotted around the site provide information about the Abbey and its history. A lovely site.

There is not a lot of this abbey remaining which is sad because it would of looked superb. I enjoyed picking conkers too. I don’t like how there are nets to stop the birds flying through what would have been the windows.

Stand under ancient ruins and wonder at how our predecessors treated other people’s special places. Kelso is in the bosom of the Borders close to the River Tweed. Walk round the elegant Square and enjoy fabulous food - the Cobbles, off the Square, is a gem!

Not open when we visited due to lockdown but still interesting to walk round it and read the plaques.
