A compact town in the Scottish Borders, Melrose is a tranquil base from which to explore the surrounding countryside. Its setting is beautiful as the town sits on the River Tweed at the base of Eildon Hills and its distinctive triple peaks. Melrose is steeped in history with remains of Roman settlement, and the ruins of Melrose Abbey date from the 12th century. A casket discovered at the abbey is thought to have contained the heart of Scottish King Robert the Bruce and was reburied and marked with a commemorative stone.
