  • 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.
