Welcome to Melrose Scotland
is an ancient settlement on the south side of the River Tweed. The Eildon
Hills a mile to the south were an important base of the Votadini tribe
in the Iron Age.
The remains of a huge hill fort around the top of the most easterly of
the Eildons acts as a reminder as their presence: while on their north
eastern flank is the Rhymer's Stone, commemorating the location of the
fabled Eildon Tree.
Today's Melrose is a pretty town largely bypassed by the key routes through
The two main roads, the A7 from Carlisle to Edinburgh and the A68 from
Darlington to Edinburgh pass a couple of miles either side of Melrose,
while the more recent bypass by the road connecting them, the A6091, means
the town is untroubled by heavy through traffic.
This is perhaps as well as it is can be a very busy place in its own right.
One route that does come right through Melrose is the Southern Upland
Way long distance footpath.
