Roxburgh is an attractive, small village on the west bank of the River Teviot approximately 4 miles to the southwest of Kelso. The village has an active community and amenities include a church and village hall. A foot bridge over the River Teviot leads to the Roxburghe Hotel and Championship Golf Course which lie close to the village.
Arguably the most attractive of the Borders towns, Kelso is set in an area of great scenic beauty and is noted particularly for its fine Market Square and for the remains of one of the great Border Abbeys. The town sits at the confluence of the River Tweed and the River Teviot. Kelso provides a good shopping centre together with an excellent range of social and sporting facilities including golf, bowls, tennis, swimming, curling, National Hunt racing and fishing. There are plans to build a new high school in the town. Kelso has good road links with the other principal towns in the Borders and there is a main line railway station at Berwick upon Tweed. The Waverley Rail Link between Galashiels and Edinburgh is to re-open in September 2015 with the terminal being at Tweedbank which is approximately 16 miles from Kelso.
