Melrose Abbey and Gardens Reviews
A fine little place Nov 12, 2010
I am sometimes at a loss to know whether to say garden or gardens - but not here. there are two separate gardens, both owned by the National Trust for Scotland, Harmony Garden and Priorwood Garden. I am assuming you might want to see both but, if you only have time for one, Priorwood would be my choice for its orchard area with many old varieties of apple trees and its specialism in dried flowers.
As for the Abbey, it's one of the four Border Abbeys. The other three, Dryburgh, jedburgh and kelso are already the subjects of reviews. Melrose is the ome I remember leadt but I think that relates far more to the weather than to any deficiency in the Abbey.
