The welcoming market town of Kelso, nestled in the heart of the Scottish Borders, offers so much to see and do both in the town itself and the stunning surrounding countryside. Located within easy travel distance of Edinburgh, Newcastle and Carlisle, it’s easy to see why Kelso is Bordering on Brilliant.

With an annual calendar crammed full of events as diverse as the seasons themselves and as the home of Springwood Park, the premier events venue in the Scottish Borders, Kelso has gained a reputation as the place to host an event in the Scottish Borders. From agricultural shows and antique fairs to motor rallies and sports competitions, the town and its people pride themselves in making sure each event is one to be remembered.

A rare gem almost lost to the modern high street; a historic town centre that radiates out from the largest cobbled town square in Scotland overlooked by elegant Georgian and Victorian buildings. Kelso boasts a spectacular shopping experience, alongside high street names there are more than 50 independent speciality shops from an ice cream parlour to traditional butchers, and country clothing to gift boutiques.

An assortment of options of accommodation is available from hotels to guest houses and Bed & Breakfasts to self-catering properties ensuring a comfortable stay in Kelso for all. Sir Walter Scott said it best: ’The most beautiful, if not the most romantic town in Scotland’. All the more reason to linger a while longer.
