Melrose

Melrose is situated on the south side of the River Tweed and has a history dating back to the Iron Age. Probably best known today for Melrose Abbey which lies to the north east of the town, however there are many other attractions that draw visitors to this spot including the walled Priorwood Garden, the Trimontium Exhibition, Abbotsford house and of course the ever popular rugby.
