Road Directions

Up to the 17th century Jedburgh's position as a frontier town placed it in the midst of national battles and cross-border raids. The red sandstone abbey on the banks of the Jed Water was founded in 1138 by David I and was pillaged and rebuilt many times. Mary Queen of Scots stayed here in 1566, at a house which now tells the story of her tragic life.

History aside, take a riverside walk or browse the shops in the colourful renovated buildings in the Market Place and Canongate. Nearby is the award-winning Jedforest Deer and Farm Park; and 16th century Ferniehirst Castle.
