Find cottages in KelsoVisit Kelso

The ancient market town of Kelso lies at the confluence of the rivers Tweed and Teviot and is centred on its cobbled market square.

In fact Kelso has the largest cobbled market square in Scotland and at its centre is still the Bull Ring, where bulls were tethered during the cattle markets. The square is now host to a range of specialist shops, from traditional Scottish cashmere to Kelso pottery and cafés. The town has many elegant Georgian and Victorian buildings and leisurely riverside walks set amongst beautiful rural landscapes.

Close by Floors Castle is the largest inhabited castle in Scotland, where you can explore the historical artefacts, extensive grounds and gardens of the Roxburge Estate, even sampling the Duke and Duchess's chef's cooking in the Terrace Restaurant. On a slightly smaller scale, but still as prominent in Kelso's history, Smailholm Tower stands tall above the town and offers stunning views from the battlements.

At Kelso Abbey, they re-enact the tales of former King of the Scot's, David I of Scotland; even in its fragmentary state, this is a superb piece of architecture.

This area is renowned for its salmon rivers, golf courses and outdoor activities with excellent walking and cycling routes.

Come and explore this beautiful town for yourself. Find Kelso holiday cottages today.
