Accommodation Info
Melrose sits in the heart of the Scottish Borders. This town was founded as a Roman fort to guard the River Tweed, although its origins date back to the Bronze Age when it was surrounded by the ?three magic hills of Eildon!? Our hostel, a former Georgian mansion, overlooks the Cistercian Abbey where Robert the Bruce?s (14thC King of Scotland) heart was buried. The St. Cuthbert's Way which finishes on Lindisfarne (Holy Island) starts at the ruins of the abbey, it being the original resting place for this well known Saint. This area is popular with cyclists and walkers as well as tourists.
