    Stop At: Scott's View, St. Boswells TD6 0AP Scotland

    The scenic view of Scott's View is on the road from St Boswells to Kelso and then turning off towards Dryburgh Abbey.

The hills serve as a reminder of the volcanic activity that once took place in the area. The lookout was known to be one of Sir Walter Scott's favourite places to come and reflect.

    The William Wallace Statue in the grounds of the Bemersyde estate, near Melrose in the Scottish Borders is a statue commemorating William Wallace. It was commissioned by David Steuart Erskine, 11th Earl of Buchan, and it protected as a category B listed building.

    The statue was made of red sandstone by John Smith of Darnick and was erected in 1814. It stands 31 feet (9.4 m) high and depicts Wallace looking over the River Tweed.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Melrose Abbey, Abbey Street, Melrose TD6 9LG Scotland

    Melrose Abbey is a magnificent ruin on a grand scale with lavishly decorated masonry.

    Probably the most famous ruin in Scotland, the abbey was founded by David I in 1136 for the Cistercian Order, and it was largely destroyed by Richard II's English army in 1385. The surviving remains of the church are of the early 15th century, and are of an elegance unsurpassed in Scotland. Objects found during excavation are displayed in the Commendator's House.

    The exterior of this magnificent ruin is decorated by unusual sculptures, including hobgoblins, cooks with ladles and a bagpipe playing pig.

    The abbey is also thought to be the burial place of Robert the Bruce's heart, marked with a commemorative carved stone plaque within the grounds.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Melrose, Melrose, Scottish Borders, Scotland

    Walk the picturesque town of Melrose and have some lunch, located next to the Eildon Hills and is the birthplace of Rugby Sevens.

    The triple peaks of the Eildon Hills are the most distinctive single landmark in the Scottish Borders. At their feet in the valley of the Tweed lies Melrose.

    The area around Melrose has been inhabited for thousands of years. The Roman army arrived in AD79 or 80 and built a major fort nearby named Trimontium, 'Place of the Three Hills'. A signal station or shrine was built on the summit of the Eildon Hill North. The Three Hills Roman Heritage Centre houses the Trimontium Museum which is dedicated to Roman life in Scotland.
