Kelso is one of the nicest towns anywhere and certainly in the Borders. Its big claim to fame is its town square which surrounded by good shops and an inn is in the best of British traditions. kelso has a good sprinkling of local shops and one can buy anything one wants here at reasonable prices. There are three or four good clothes shops led by Orvis, a good health food store and a good ironmongers. Fish from Eyemouth, and now recently opened a decent bread shop, although they cannot slice so have limited value to me. Every now and again (sadly not consistent) they have a market either antiques or farmers in the square. Its the kind of place to spend a day wandering (see the ruined abbey), walk the Tweed, lots of good shops decent restaurants. enjoy, there not many like this left.
