Expensive for what you can see, one highlight is to find The heart of the Bruce, after several hours we located a square concert block under which we were lead to believe the heart is buried,

My husband and I toured the Jedburgh Abbey recently. It is an imposing, large site and is interesting to walk through it. The audio tour provides information of the ruins. We have seen many ruins including those at Holyrood Palace, and Jedburgh is more extensive.

The Jedburgh Abby is amazing. Touring trough Scotland there are ruins everywhere. This was the largest and most complete uninhabited ruin we saw. It is magnificent. The walking tour is very informative and through. If you do only one ruin, this is it.

Definitely, we took ours with us all over Jedburgh and he thoroughly enjoyed roaming around the abbey, Jedburgh is a very pet friendly place we found. A lot of the cafes let dogs in too which was good.

The Abbey is in the centre of the town near some lovely cafes and shops. It is an easy walk to get there. If coming from outskirts public transport will be available.
