THINGS TO DO
The historic Royal Burgh of Jedburgh lies 10 mile north of the English border. Its red sandstone abbey on the banks of the Jed water was founded in 1138 by David I and was many times sacked and rebuilt. An award-winning Abbey Visitors Centre portrays its troubled past.
In 1566, Mary Queen of Scots stayed in Jedburgh in a house that now tells the story of her tragic life. A winner of the beautiful "Scotland in Bloom" prize, Jedburgh offers an attractive setting to explore the town trail, take a riverside walk or browse around the shops in its colourful market place.
Golf- with over 20 golf courses to choose from why not try the freedom of the fairways.
Walking - St Cuthberts Way, Deer Street, and the Eildons offer some of the most spectacular scenery. Contact the Tourist Information Office in Jedburgh to learn more about other wonderful area walks.
Cycling- with the introduction of the Border pathways, the Borders have some of the best cycling routes in Scotland.
Fishing- why not try the famous Junction Pool on the river Tweed where the best Scottish salmon can be caught.
