About the location
Melrose 5 miles; Kelso 10 miles.
St Boswells sits on the south of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders. There is much evidence of Roman occupation, dating from almost two thousand years ago. Today, St Boswells is known for being on the route of St Cuthbert’s Way, the long distance path from Melrose Abbey to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. The village boasts a hotel, café, several shops, post office, butcher and a garage. As well as spectacular salmon and brown trout fishing on the River Tweed, the local riverside walks take in attractive scenery. An ideal venue for walkers and cyclists, St Boswells is surrounded by the gorgeous Borders landscape. If you want to venture further afield, Edinburgh is approximately an hour away, as is the Berwickshire coast.
