A 15th Century hotel in Jedburgh will have to have thousands of pounds spent on it or it could collapse, according to its new owners.
The Spread Eagle in Jedburgh was rumoured to have been visited by Mary, Queen of Scots, and some parts of it are built with stone from Jedburgh Abbey.
The front wall of the hotel is buckling, due to structural damage.
It's thought a wall was removed from the hotel bar 50 years ago, which has caused near collapse on one part of the building.
The new owners, the Mclay Partnership, plan to spend up to £60,000 fixing it.
