Melrose

Join us at the heart of the Scottish Borders, nestling between the River Tweed and the green Eildon Hills, in the town of Melrose, at the Waverley Castle Hotel.

Lying at the heart of Sir Walter Scott country Melrose has a wealth of interesting attractions, from its beautiful abbey and the walled gardens of Priorwood the area is a haven for lovers of great history and culture. With the town being at the heart of an area of gentle hills, undulating valleys and Border Abbeys, this is an ideal place for people looking to spend time outdoors.

Looking a little further afield the fantastic cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Newcastle are all within easy reach. All three cities have a fascinating history to discover and stunning architecture to enjoy, each providing its own particular culture. For some ancient history head to the border with England and discover the Roman era ruins that surround Hadrian’s Wall which also enjoys stunning views over Northumberland National Park.

The Waverley Castle Hotel is splendidly set in 5 acres of rolling parkland behind which flows the River Tweed. Spend time in the comfortable lounges and bar, enjoy various games, stroll around the grounds and dance the nights away in the entertainment room.
