Kelso Scotland – Kelso is a small town in Scotland located in the region of Scottish Borders to the south-east of Edinburgh, on the banks of the Tweed. The settlement moved after the founding of the Abbey of Kelso in 1128. Its name comes from the chalky soil where there was an existing plant then called Calkou. It is famous for its streets and its main square which is fully paved, its Georgian houses, which Sir Walter Scott , the famous British writer who was a student in the local high school, said was “the most beautiful and perhaps be the most romantic village in Scotland”. The local rugby club, Kelso RFC , is one of the most famous of Scotland. Kelso is also known for its racecourse which has meetings for National Hunt horse racing. Kelso is to the south-east of Edinburgh.
