Smailholm Tower (HS)

Kelso

 

Cancel Message

This 20-metre high stronghold, built in the 1400s dominates the skyline. On a clear day you can see as far as Banburgh Castle in Northumberland. The author Sir Walter Scott spent much of his childhood on a farm below the tower, where he first heard stories that made up his 'Minstrelsy of the Scottish Border', the subject of an exhibition here.

Opening Times

April to September, 9.30am - 5.30pm.
