Melrose

Melrose is situated in the heart of the Scottish Borders. The town is skirted by the River Tweed and sheltered by the triple peaks of the Eildon Hills. The name Melrose is derived from a Cumbric (an early form of Welsh) word meaning 'bare moor'. Melrose is in a perfect location for the visitor and local alike to enjoy the beauty and peace of the Borders. Although most of the buildings in the town date from more recent times, there are more than a few historical sites in the area for you to visit
