St Boswells is a village on the south side of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders. Said to have the largest village green in Scotland, this 40-acre open space gives St Boswells a unique character. The village has a hotel, post office, award-winning butcher, garage, fish and chip shop, bookshop, cafe and several shops. There is also a golf course next to the River Tweed, a cricket club, football club, rugby club and tennis club. The village has an annual fair, originally a focus for the trade of cattle. It is now an important 2-day event on the village green on 18 July each year and is a popular for fortune-telling! The village provides an ideal base for those interested in walking, as the Borders Abbey Way passes by the village and it is also on the route of St Cuthberts Way long-distance footpath linking Melrose Abbey (5 miles northwest) to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne off the Northumberland coast in England. St Boswells village river bends and twists on its swift-flowing course north of the village. Famous for its salmon and brown trout, it is popular with anglers. Many of the local houses were built of stones from the river bed. The riverside walks are an activity not-to-be-missed. Other places of interest include Dryburgh Abbey, 3 miles from St Boswells and the impressive Smailholm Tower is 4 miles north-east of the village.
