Kelso, a friendly, thriving, market town in the heart of The Scottish Borders, is a great place to visit, to stay, and to explore the beautiful and historic Scottish - and English - Border Country! It is also a wonderful place to live and work.

The ancient town centre, with the largest cobbled market square in Scotland, is a perfect setting for the diverse array of delightful, independent shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. Sir Walter Scott certainly thought Kelso ‘ the most beautiful, if not the most romantic town in Scotland’.

Leisurely walks along cobbled streets, or by the banks of The River Tweed, enjoy stunning views, elegant Georgian and Victorian buildings, and historic sites en route.

Exploring The Scottish Borders on foot, bicycle or car - the surrounding countryside boasts some of the best farm land in Scotland, which, as well as being productive, offers the most delightful scenery and tranquillity imaginable!

World class salmon fishing on Tweed, a rich choice of golf courses, superb walking country, routes and rides for cycling and riding, are all here in The Scottish Borders. Further information and guides are available, in season, from Kelso Visitor Centre in the Town Hall.
