Jedburgh Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Scottish Borders...

A Visitor Centre portrays its turbulent past. In 1566 Mary Queen of Scots stayed in Jedburgh in a house that now tells the story of her tragic life. Winner of the country town prize in Beautiful Scotland in Bloom, Jedburgh today offers an attractive setting to follow the town trail, take a riverside walk or browse amongst the shops in the colourful renovated buildings in the Market Place and Canongate.

Focal point of the local calendar is the Jethart Callant Festival in early July when the Callant leads his mounted supporters in two weeks of ceremonial rideouts to places linked with the town's history. Festival Day is followed by the Jedburgh Border Games, whilst at the 16th century Ferniehirst Castle, the grounds and Kerr Information Centre are open to visitors on a limited basis.
