Heading south towards the Scottish Borders, we will stop at the world famous Scots View (nominated as one of the best views in Britain)and weather permitting we take a brief walk to The William Wallace Statue. A Spartan inspired 4 metre statue of the 12th century freedom fighter. Then onto the town of Melrose where you will have the opportunity to visit its Abbey, one of the four Border Abbey’s founded by King David I. It is also the burial place of Robert the Bruce’s Heart. Melrose is the site of the largest Roman camp in Scotland and the Roman Heritage Centre is one of the many things to see in this lovely Borders town. Leaving Melrose we will travel through Galashiels and North on the A7, driving over the soft rolling hills of the Southern Uplands. We will stop at Dobbies Gardens Centre for a comfort stop. Such is the popularity of Dobbies amongst locals that JK Rowling named one of her most popular character in the Harry Potter novels after it.

Rosslyn Chapel is one of the most amazing places you will ever visit - It is unique and famed world wide for the beauty of its carvings and the aura of mystery and magic that surrounds it, as featured in the best seller ‘The Da Vinci Code’ and ‘The Hiram Key’. You will hear stories about Freemasonry, Knights Templar, The Holy Grail, Gypsies, Solomon, Babylon and much more, even a Scotsman in America before Columbus – all within a 15th Century Chapel that will totally captivate you.
A five minute walk will take you to the ruins of Rosslyn Castle. Walk on the bridge which provided the setting for the penultimate scene in the Da Vinci Movie.
