Welcome to Melrose and Melrose Living – Important Note

Throughout 2016 the site will be under constant development – some sections are still to be populated with information and businesses.


Melrose Living is an online hub celebrating all that’s best about living in Melrose and the Scottish Borders. Whether you live, work, or just visiting the area, you’ll find lots of insider tips about where to eat, shop, and explore.  Melrose Living also has news and stories about what’s happening in and around Melrose.


Melrose is a small, pretty town on the River Tweed, with a spectacular abbey and lovely setting at the foot of the Eildon Hills. It’s surrounded by picturesque villages and home to the world-famous Rugby Sevens, with cultural highlights including Sir Walter Scott’s Abbotsford House and the Borders Book Festival. With plenty of great small shops and eateries, it’s a definite draw for visitors!

Take a look at what we’re proud of in this beautiful Borders town, and send us news about the places and people you want to shout about.

This is your site, so come and be part of it!

Scottish Borders Living was proud to sponsor the Scottish Borders Business Excellence Awards 2014

The quality of nominations for the Business Excellence Awards was high and the judges faced a difficult task in creating the shortlist of finalists and even a more difficult task of deciding the winner for each of this year's seven categories.

The winners were announced at the Scottish Borders Business Excellence Awards that was held on Friday 25th April 2014 at the Scottish Borders Collage Campus. To find out more see the article under the Scottish Borders Council news section.

If you want to watch the finalists videos then you can by visiting the Scottish Borders Living YouTube Channel.
