Holidays in Melrose

The area and getting around

A typical Scottish town with lots of charm

Scotland is a country with many beautiful places to discover, and Melrose is no exception. It's what you'd expect from a small town in the UK, with old buildings and houses in a medieval gothic style, narrow streets, alleyways and small squares. All of this is contrasted by the beautiful natural scenery that surrounds it, with rolling green hills and meadows, trees and shrubs of all shapes and sizes, and pretty gardens all around the town. It is certainly an ideal destination for those wishing to get away from the big multitudes, as it is not overcrowded, you will find a quiet atmosphere without too much bustling.

A tourist destination that is easy to explore

As mentioned above, the fact that Melrose is a small place makes it easy to travel to the sites of interest. If you wish to explore the town centre, you can simply walk around and visit for yourself all the little shops, restaurants and cafés within easy reach. However, if you wish to travel to tourist attractions a little further afield, there are tour services that can take you there, or you can use Melrose's efficient public transport service. But however you want to get from one place to the other, you won't have to worry too much, as being a tourist destination in Scotland, there is plenty of street signage, and many of the locals will also be happy to help you find your way around.

Travellers and activities

Melrose for nature lovers

With so many incredible natural sites it can sometimes seem overwhelming where to start, so here's a wonderful option to begin your journey. Eildon Hills is ideal if you want to visit a place with incredible views, and is also recommended for those who enjoy hiking. You'll traverse many hills and valleys to get to the top, but the journey is just as fun and impressive. Once at the top the scene is simply priceless, as the horizon stretches out, and you can see the different hills and mountains that characterize the topography of the area.

Melrose for culture lovers

Now if after a walk in nature you want to get to know the historical and cultural sites of Melrose better, this option is perfect for you. Abbotsford House is a fascinating house that belonged to the iconic 19th century British Novelist Sir Walter Scott. Once you take a guided tour of this place, you can learn more about the history of this writer and his importance to the nation of Scotland. You will also see the beautiful surrounding gardens, a cosy café and a convenient gift shop.

Founded in 1136 by King David I, Melrose was the first Cistercian abbey in Scotland!

Top 5 travel tips in Melrose

1. Take a stroll through Priorwood Garden

Continuing the beautiful nature of Melrose, this particular garden is the only one specializing in dried flowers in the whole of Scotland. It is located in the vicinity of Melrose Abbey, and displays a wide variety of plants, flowers, trees and shrubs, all unique in their kind and in many colours and shapes. It also has a beautiful orchard where different fruits such as apples, pears and plums are harvested.

2. Learn new things at Trimontium Museum

This museum is quite interesting as it focuses on the history of the Roman fortresses that were located in the nearby village of Newstead. Here you can see an exhibition of all the findings that scientists made about this frontier base called Trimontium, such as the costumes worn by the soldiers, their weapons and even maps of what the place looked like in those days.

3. Discover the iconic Melrose Abbey

This is undoubtedly one of the main attractions of Melrose, and is an abbey built in 1136 by the monarch David I. Its history is quite interesting, and although today what we can see are the ruins left by Richard II's army in 1385, much of its original structure can still be appreciated. One of the most famous legends surrounding this place is that King Robert I Bruce loved this place so much that he chose it as the burial place for his heart after his death in 1329.

4. Have a day of hiking on the St. Cuthbert’s Way

In addition to the Eildon Hills, this trail is ideal for those wishing to hike deep into the Melrose wilderness. It is approximately 100 miles in distance, and is named after a saint named Cuthbert, a native of this area in the 7th century. Although it is quite a long distance, there are many groups of hikers who make the journey in just a few days, and the incredible scenery you'll encounter is sure to be worth it.

5. Visit the Harmony Garden

This beautiful garden is ideal to escape from your everyday reality and feel like in a fairy tale for a day. It has an organization that will make you feel calm and peaceful once you walk through its facilities. Enjoy its well-tended lawns, fruit beds and scented borders, where a Georgian-style manor house sits in the centre.
