    At the heart of the Scottish Borders, nestling between the River Tweed and the green Eildon Hills, is the town of Melrose. It lies in the heart of Sir Walter Scot country and offers the visitor a wealth of interest with its beautiful abbey and walled garden of Priorwood. Essentially a place for holidays with the accent on outdoor country pursuits, the attractive town of Melrose is at the heart of an area of gentle hills, undulating valleys and Border Abbeys. The stately looking Waverley Castle Hotel is splendidly set in 5 acres of rolling parkland behind which flows the River Tweed. While away time in the comfortable lounges and bar, enjoy various games, stroll around the grounds and dance the nights away in the entertainment room.

    • Relax in the Eildon Restaurant with outstanding views over the Eildon Hills.
    • A non-stop programme of lively entertainment.
    • Located at the heart of the Scottish Borders.
    • Nestling between the River Tweed and the Green Eildon Hills.
