  • Free, and interesting to see. Won't take long, but nice to walk around the ruins and green space to note the history.  more »
  • Worth a visit and it's free! The restored cloisters give impression of abbey life before it was destroyed. Impressive arches and light on the stone can provide stunning shots if into photography.  more »
  • Okay for a quick look. Bit boring. But well looked after. Not a place you'd go for a special trip out... Only if you are driving past or visit the area.  more »

  • There's a lovely atmosphere in Kelso. I loved learning the history of this beautiful old town and found the local people very friendly and helpful. I look forward to visiting again.
  • Not so much to see at this abbey as some of the other Historic Scotland venues, but still quite nice to see and it is free to get in to.
  • An interesting relic of the past right in the centre of the town. Worth a look at if you are in the area.
  • Not much left of it. But lovely gardens round it.
  • Fine ruins of once great abbey, situated in Kelso. Combine with a visit to the towns shops.
