Scott's View

Reviewed By 24vacation - Sarnia, Canada

Even on a misty, rainy morning there is something magical about the countryside of Scotland. Although it would have been nice to have the vista that I have seen published before (the hills and Valleys laid out for miles before us), it was still beautiful. Well worth the trip down the back roads to find it and hopefully we'll return for another gorgeous view.

Dryburgh Abbey

First established in 1150, Dryburgh Abbey became the premier house in Scotland of the Premonstratensian order and today continues to have a peaceful atmosphere. Despite having been set on fire three times, the chapter house features paintwork that dates back to its construction and today boasts some of the best Gothic architecture in Scotland. These graceful ruins became the burial place of David Eskrine, 11th Earl of Buchan in 1829, and three years later his friend Sir Walter Scott was also buried here.

Stunning location and well worth a visit even if this requires a detour. We combined with a stay at the Abbey Hotel and had a really relaxing and enjoyable stay.

William Wallace Statue

Reviewed By springlering - Marietta, Georgia

Free to visit, this little gem is on the road between Dryburgh and Melrose/Abbotsford. There is a small parking area for maybe ten vehicles. Go through the gate and follow the path. You will come to the monument after about five minutes walk through a fragrant forest. The statue and surrounding area is almost overgrown, but it is still clearly visible from the side.

The Temple of the Muses

Reviewed By 44AlanS - Strathaven, United Kingdom

5/10 min walk from the Dryburgh Abbey Hotel and close to suspension bridge on the tweed. Part of a very pleasant walk. Monument with statue of the Muses in the middle was very interesting although the faces are more modern. Belongs to an era when wealthy people erected statues across their land for their own amusement. Recommended if you're in the area.
