Even if the fish aren't biting you can always catch a glorious view of Floors Castle from this spot.
To the front, the Turret House overlooks St Andrews Church whilst from the rear upstairs windows you can see the 12th century ruins of Kelso Abbey tucked in behind a magnificent horse chestnut tree.
