Melrose's history dates back to the Bronze Age. There is still a scattering of brochs in the countryside around the town, possibly a legacy of the Romans for managing the rich sheep grazing on the moors.
The town has a good selection of shops including those selling knitwear, tweeds, books and antiques. There is also a variety of restaurants serving classic Scottish fare in cosy surroundings.
