The triple peaks of the Eildon Hills are the most distinctive single landmark in the Borders. At their feet in the valley of the River Tweed lies Melrose.
The ruined Abbey which dates from 1136 is believed, following a series of archaeological digs, to be the final resting place of Robert the Bruce's heart. The abbey is also the starting point for St Cuthbert's Way, a 100km cross border walking route. Adjacent Priorwood Garden specialises in plants suitable for dried flower arranging with an apple orchard walk and picnic area. The Trimontium Exhibition gives an insight into the Romans in Scotland. Three miles west on the banks of the Tweed is Sir Walter Scott's romantic mansion of Abbotsford.

Four miles south is St Boswells, a village with a spacious tree-lined green. Nearby, Mertoun offers 20 acres of scenic gardens. Dryburgh Abbey lies in a secluded, peaceful setting by the River Tweed and a woodland walk leads to the massive 22 foot high sandstone statue of William Wallace.
