Tweed Rig, was built high with large picture windows and a long South-facing balcony to take advantage of the view across the Tweed valley to Melrose, the Abbey and the Eildon Hills beyond. There's an old iron suspension bridge across the Tweed, (before the 1800s people used to cross the river on stilts!) so you can walk to Melrose where there are some fine shops, pubs, hotels, bistro,cafes. Even Gattonside itself has two restaurants, so no driving needed after dinner. Melrose is in the middle of the Scottish Borders - a great base for castles, abbeys, country houses, golf courses, wilderness areas, fishing, walking, cycling - and Edinburgh is only about an hour's drive.

About the neighbourhood
Melrose is a small town situated on the River Tweed, in the heart of the Scottish Borders and was voted by a Sunday Times survey as the Best Town to live in Scotland. Nestled in beautiful surroundings at the foot of the Eildon Hills, the town has a mix of thriving shops, restaurants and pubs. Melrose is also home to world-famous rugby union sevens, Melrose Abbey, Sir Walter Scott's Abbotsford house and the Borders Book Festival.
Getting around
Best if you have a car to explore the area. The train from Tweedbank station (5 min taxi) is a fast and convenient way to visit Edinburgh. Melrose high street is a 15-20 min walk over the Suspension bridge.
