Accessed through an arch just off Coldstream's Market Square, Coldstream Museum is worth a browse if you're spending much time in the region of Merse - the southeastern extremity of Scotland, bordering England. A large part of the museum understandably features the famous Coldstream Guards, but there's also a fair amount of information about the town's early history, including Coldstream Abbey (long gone), border conflicts and leisure pursuits. An interesting temporary exhibition on our last visit featured the fortunes of the grand mansions liberally scattered across the Borders region.
