The local area guide to living in Jedburgh

The ancient small town of Jedburgh lies 10 miles north of the border with England in a southern district of Scotland known as the Scottish Borders. Full of history and character, the old market town is home to many sites of historic interest, including Jedburgh Castle and Jail, a massive and well-preserved 12th century abbey, the Carnegie Library, an old Market Place, and a former home of Mary Queen of Scots. The area’s settlement is traced back to Celtic origins in 854 AD.

Jedburgh is known for having borne the brunt of sovereignty battles between Scotland and England, having been subjected to fierce destruction and occupation from the English many times between the years 1296 to 1548. And, as many times, the resilient town has been reborn and rebuilt with ever-increasing beauty. The likes of William Wordsworth and Sir Walter Scott have enjoyed colourful, memorable strolls amid its beautiful old streets and buildings. Greyfriars Garden and the Jedforest Deer and Farm Park are other beautiful and interesting sites of this Scottish gateway town.

Any journey from northeast England to Edinburgh will pass through Jedburgh along the A68. The Jed Water river runs through the middle of town and is an eventual tributary of the River Tweed. Residents of Jedburgh’s beautiful riverside country locale enjoy golf, horseback riding, walking, cycling and fishing.
