Melrose enjoys an enviable position beneath the Eildon Hills and adjacent to the river Tweed, Scotland’s foremost Salmon river. The area is steeped in history and is an ideal base for exploring everything that the stunning Scottish Borders has to offer.

Winner of the 2018 Sunday Times award as the best place in Scotland to live and described by them as a “Country Classic”, it is therefore little wonder that Melrose is known locally as the “gem of Scotland”.

The town hosts a great range of independent shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes all offering a wide range of food and drink catering to all tastes.
