Surrounding Villages

Melrose and its surrounding towns and villages are in the heart of the Scottish Borders. They are full of country charm, yet easy access to modern amenities, including NHS Borders and big-name high street shopping in Galashiels.

Also on the doorstep are some of the region’s prettiest villages, including Darnick, Gattonside, Bowden, St Boswells and Newstead, as well as Newtown St Boswells (home to Scottish Borders Council), Tweedbank (Scottish Public Pensions Agency) and Earlston (state-of-the-art high school).

You’ll also find great eateries, hotels, boutiques and gift shops, a theatre and lovely walks with views of the Eildon Hills and the River Tweed.
