Kelso : Michelin's recommendations
Kelso stands at the confluence of the Tweed and its main tributary, the Teviot. It is a pretty market town, with remarkable Georgian architecture, serving a rich farming hinterland. Though arable farming is the main activity thanks to the Merse’s fertile soil, this undulating region still rears sheep in the hills. It is also known for its horses, which are either used for riding, trekking, jumping, hunting or breeding.
