St Ronan's Wells Visitor Centre

Housed in an historic spa, the permanent exhibtion here tells the story of Innerleithen and St Ronan's Wells, describing their connections with the great Scottish writers James Hogg and Sir Walter Scott.

The origins of the unique Cleikum Ceremonies held in the town every July are explained here too, giving an insight into this wonderful and much loved tradition.

There is a small programme of temporary exhibitons which focus on the local area - this year's are listed below. Take a look at our Museum & Galleries Guide 2017 to see what's on at our other venues throughout the Scottish Borders.

The adjoining gardens provide a lovely setting to relax in with sculptures, picnic areas, plants for sale and our very own spring water to sample.
