In brief: An inn where traditional style and modern chic meet.
Our highlight: The views of Galashiels’ town clock and fountain from room ‘S’.
Insider guide: The rooms here are traditionally furnished, with panelled feature walls, chesterfield headboards and custom-made furnishings. If you can tear yourself away from the goose-down duvet, visit Abbotsford, the historic home of the early 19th century poet and writer, Sir Walter Scott. The Salmon Inn is renowned throughout the Borders and beyond for its hospitality and exceptional cuisine, which runs from traditional fare to their sticky chicken salad.
