Melrose Abbey

Almost on our doorstep, in the town of Melrose at the foot of the Eildons, Melrose Abbey and the Roman exhibition are very interesting. The heart of Robert the Bruce is interred within the grounds. Watch out for the bagpipe playing pig in the masonry. Seriously! Combine it with a visit to the Harmony Garden, Priorwood Garden, and perhaps the Roman fort of Trimontium. (2.7 miles)
