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.

Melrose Gibson Park Caravan & Motorhome Club Site is nestled on the edge of Melrose in a peaceful setting that is overlooked by the beautiful Eilden Hills. A short walk from the site are the charming shops, lovely restaurants and pubs and historic  buildings of Melrose, including the famous ruins of Melrose Abbey, the resting place of Robert the Bruce's heart. Walking enthusiasts will be delighted, there are 1,500 miles of footpaths to explore along the banks of the Tweed or by hiking up into the High Country to view the Borders' picturesque, rural patchwork. There is also easy access to excellent cycle routes as well as fishing in the River Tweed.  If you are a fan of rugby, the second Saturday in April hosts the annual Melrose Sevens Rugby Tournament. Another event not to be missed is the colourful Melrose Festival, held in  mid-June each year. Visitors can now take advantage of the new railway line that connects the Scottish Borders to Edinburgh. The site is around 1.5 miles (30 minutes' walk) from Tweedbank Station, and the train can get you into the heart of Edinburgh in just 55 minutes, avoiding the traffic and park and ride. Non-members may join on site and save £12/night.
