Activities & Attractions
Overlooking the river, the house is ideally placed for fishing guests and close to several other classic beats on middle Tweed. There is also an excellent selection of reasonably-priced fishing towards Melrose and on the Teviot, Till and Whiteadder nearby.
A few minutes walk will take you into the the delightful, historic town of Kelso described by Sir Walter Scott as "the most beautiful, if not the most romantic village in Scotland." Kelso today remains one of the most attractive and unspoilt towns in the Borders, with its Flemish-style cobbled square, 12th Century abbey, the majestic Floors Castle, and the championship Roxburghe golf course. The town offers a fine selection of interesting, independent shops, a good selection of lively pubs and restaurants, as well as National Hunt racing at nearby Kelso Racecourse.
The pretty town of Melrose is within easy driving distance of Kelso and is well worth a visit. Highlights include the evocative ruined abbey, motor museum, pubs, restaurants and some lovely boutique-style shops. On the way home, stop off at stately Mellerstain House, pop into the 15th Century Smailholm Tower, offering panoramic views from the top, or take a detour up to the magnificent Scott’s View overlooking the Tweed Valley and Eildon Hills.
