A little about the tour:
drive to the borders is scenic and delightful, as we
take you through some charming wee villages. Melrose
Abbey is home to the heart of Robert the Bruce, the
great Scottish King.
Next Abbotsford House is the house built and lived in by Sir Walter Scott, the 19th century novelist, and author of timeless classics such as Waverley, Rob Roy, Ivanhoe and The Lady of the Lake. Along the route, in the picturesque country town of Kelso lies another of the Borders four Abbeys. Kelso Abbey was founded in 1128 and like others suffered in the Border war. Even in ruins; their magnificent architecture bears witness to their spiritual and political power.
The jewel in Kelso's crown is perhaps the French-style cobbled square. Situated around The Square is a selection of fine retail outlets, both national and privately owned, where any visitor could buy the perfect gift for their loved ones back home.
