Waverley Castle Hotel (primary)

At the heart of the Scottish Borders, nestling between the River Tweed and the green Eildon Hills, is the town of Melrose. It lies at the heart of Sir Walter Scott country and offers visitors a wealth of interest with its beautiful abbey and walled garden of Priorwood. The town is at the heart of an area of gentle hills, undulating valleys and Border Abbeys, which make it an ideal place for people looking to spend time outdoors. The Waverley Castle Hotel is splendidly set in 5 acres of rolling parkland behind which flows the River Tweed. Spend time in the comfortable lounges and bar, enjoy various games, stroll around the grounds and dance the nights away in the entertainment room.


Excursion to Edinburgh (Included)

Enjoy a excursion to Scotland’s historical capital, Edinburgh. Admire the majestic castle, soak up the atmosphere of the Royal Mile or hit the shops on Princes Street. There’s something here for everyone.

Jaunt to Kelso (Included)

Jaunt to Kelso, set at the junction of the rivers Teviot and Tweed, this is one of the most beautifully situated Border Towns.
