More Than You Think

Kelso is a small town in the Scottish Borders region, with a population of just 6000. There is a cobbled French style square in the town centre, surrounded by plenty of good places to eat and drink.
There is also plenty of history, with the ruins of the once great abbey in the town, and the amazing nearby Floors castle.
For sports lovers, Kelso Racecourse is the home of National Hunt racing in the UK.

    Castles, abbey ruins, ancient towers - all so imposing and romantic at the same time. A very interesting page with lots of historical information.
