On a showery Bank Holiday weekend take a trip to Jedburgh and find out about the Prisoner Queen. Mary Queen of Scots spent just a month in Jedburgh in 1566 but it had a big impact on her life. In the Mary Queen of Scots Visitor Centre there is a unique collection of objects and pictures to give you an insight into the life of this charming and spirited woman. This period of her life was to be a turning point and the beginning of the troubles that led to her death. In between the showers you can enjoy the beautiful pear tree garden.
In the Castle Jail and Museum in Jedburgh, which looks very grand with its battlements and towers, you can follow real life stories of the prisoners who stayed there and why some people thought it was the most comfortable jail in Scotland.
Children can try dressing in clothes the prisoners and jailers might have worn and look for clues on the activity trail.
Admission is free and there is level access to the ground floor of both the Jail and the Visitor Centre but wheel chair users may need some help in laces.
5 Self Catering "5 Star" Luxury Lodges each with their own Hot Tub in Scotland, close to Edinburgh in the Scottish Borders offering you peace, tranquillity and a place to escape to in the heart of beautiful Scotland.
