Alan Rogers Review

Melrose Gibson Park is an ideal transit park, being so close to the A68, but is also a perfect base for exploring this southern area of Scotland. Edinburgh is only 35 miles away, accessible by car or on one of the regular buses which run from the park entrance, so an ideal day trip. This small, three-acre park has only 60 touring pitches plus, unusually, an extra 12 tent pitches (summer only) next to the adjacent rugby pitch. All touring pitches have 16A electricity and TV connections (otherwise it is a bad signal here), all have hardstanding and ten are serviced with water and drainage. A one-way system on the tarmac roads is in operation.

This is Sir Walter Scott country – visit Abbotsford House, his romantic mansion on the banks of the River Tweed. Melrose’s Abbey ruins are believed to be the final resting place of Robert the Bruce and the starting place of Saint Cuthbert’s Way. A 62-mile, cross-border trail leads to Northumberland’s Lindisfarne. The colourful Melrose Festival is held each year in June.


First rate heated toilet facilities are in a new building with spacious showers and washbasins in cabins, and have a very pleasing finish. Laundry facilities. Separate room with shower and WC for disabled visitors. Motorcaravan services. Gas is available. WiFi. Security barrier (operated by card).

Turn left off A68 Jedburgh-Lauder road at roundabout 2.5 miles past Newton St Boswell onto A6091 Galashiels road. In 3.25 miles at roundabout turn right onto B6374 to Melrose (not at first turning into town). Site is on right at filling station opposite Melrose Rugby Club, just before town centre.
