Travel to the historic town of Melrose, birthplace of the game of Rugby Sevens and location of Melrose Abbey, founded in 660, said to be the burial place of the casket containing the heart of Robert the Bruce. Stop for lunch and enjoy some free time to explore Melrose & its Abbey.
From here, travel via St. Boswells and pause for a photo stop at Scott's View, where we can enjoy glorious scenic views.
