St Cuthbert's Way

Mile 0

Melrose

Melrose nestles between the River Tweed and the Eildon hills. The latter are volcanic relics, although there is a legend that tells of the Devil splitting one hill into three, and there is another myth recounting how the ghost of King Arthur lies under the hills, which probably accounts for the fact that it is not seen very often! You may have time to visit a couple of the local attractions - maybe a twilight look at the marvellous pink abbey, where the heart of Robert the Bruce is buried in a lead casket. There are also the Priorwood gardens next to Middle Walk and the Teddy Bear Museum nearby.

George & Abbotsford Hotel

High Street, Melrose, Roxburghshire, TD6 9PD - St Cuthbert's Way

The George and Abbotsford Hotel, an 18th century coaching inn, overlooks the High Street which was originally the Abbey Wall. It has been famed for its hospitality since the time of Sir Walter Scott when he entertained his good friend William Wordsworth while his house, at nearby Abbotsford, was being completed. The Hotel is a listed building showing many of the architectural features of the Georgian period. Eye-catching rugby memorabilia is proudly displayed in the bar area as a reminder of the historic Melrose Sevens. With a passion for great food and 5* service, the George and Abbotsford Hotel aims to provide the ideal setting for every occasion, whether you are looking for a short break away, a chilled drink or tasty meal. The George and Abbotsford is ideally situated as a starting point for St Cuthbert's Way or as a stop off for the Sir Walter Scott Way.
