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.
