Melrose is the small but sophisticated town in the shadows of the Eildons. The twon is unlike any other Border town as it was settled during the late 1800's by wealthy retired civil servants and others providing a better class of clientelle for local business. This is reflected in the town having several high class ladies fashion shops plus two good butchers and a baker. The twon also boast several good restaurants and coffee shops and one immediately "feels good" on the streets. It has two good antique shops, both expensive but offering a wide range of choice. Not to be missed.
