The Scottish Borders hold some of the world's greatest treasures within their sprawling arms. Few places on the planet have such an awe-inspiring landscape as the Borders and it seems that every town located around this area is treated to stunning visuals that belong more in a James Cameron movie than in real life. Though it can be rather difficult to choose the most beautiful city in a land filled with gorgeous locales, it wouldn't be too out of line to suggest Jedburgh as a candidate. Resting on the Jed water, which flows from the river Teviot, the town of Jedburgh offers a stunning waterfront view nearly everywhere you look. There are also the remains of some of the most impressive buildings in the United Kingdom including the famed Jedburgh Abbey. Founded in the 1100s, this abbey was one of the most beautiful churches in the land but today we can only see the ruins of what must have brought a tear to many an eye. All the same, even the ruins are rather fascinating and they make for an arguably better photo-op than the same old abbeys that dot the United Kingdom in nearly every city.

Jedburgh is very close to England; only ten miles to be exact. As such, one can reasonably expect there to be a lot of history in the town both violent and otherwise and, of course, this is the case. Jedburgh was attacked by England nearly endlessly during the 1500s and it was during this time that the Jedburgh Abbey began to be irrevocably destroyed. There was once a castle in Jedburgh that was constructed by none other than the first King David but, sadly, the English destroyed this fortress as well. One thing that can still be seen, however, is the home of the famed Mary Queen of Scots. Mary Queen of Scots was a frequent resident of Jedburgh during the 1560s and she had an illustrious home in town that still stands to this day. The house is a museum these days, which makes it all the more fascinating since everybody is allowed to peruse the interior at their leisure and snap pictures of what the daily life of a queen in the 1500s must have been like.

The town of Jedburgh today is a rather small town that has a population of only four thousand. This low number is somewhat inaccurate, however, because the town swells during tourist season as countless people come to lay eyes on the historical treasures found within. Also, many scientists and archeologists can be found in Jedburgh as they dig through the ruins of the once-stately abbey. There was a massive unearthing of the abbey conducted nearly thirty years ago and since then Scotland has opened the ruins to the public for a nominal fee. This is a great boon for scientists and laymen alike because now the chance to explore the crumbling remains of one of the most significant periods of history is offered to anybody willing to visit Jedburgh.
