43 Abbotsford Road is well situated in a popular and established small exclusive development located on the periphery of the town, within easy reach of all of the amenities Galashiels has to offer. Situated in the heart of the Scottish Borders, the flourishing town of Galashiels undoubtedly offers the most extensive range of amenities in the area, with an excellent variety of shops, supermarkets, pre-school, primary and secondary schooling, and superb sporting, leisure and recreational facilities. The Heriot-Watt Scottish Borders Campus has a thriving student community, and there is a good selection of restaurants and bars in the town and surrounding area. Galashiels is easily commutable to Edinburgh via the A7 or A68 trunk roads, and airports are located at Edinburgh and Newcastle. The east coast main line runs from Berwick-upon-Tweed, and the new Borders Railway which opened in September 2015 provides a direct service to Edinburgh in approximately 1 hour from Galashiels and nearby Tweedbank.
The Scottish Borders offers a quality of life that is second to none and in an area of 1800 square miles there is certainly plenty of space to enjoy our beautiful unspoilt countryside and individual towns. Leave the congestion and overpricing behind and discover for yourself what a fantastic place the Borders is to live, work and play. Home to world class activities and attractions, it’s no wonder that the area is so popular with visitors who come here to enjoy mountain biking at Glentress, salmon fishing on the Tweed, walking in our hills and forests or diving off the Berwickshire coast. The area is also known for its’ spectacular Common Ridings, when whole communities come together to celebrate each town’s individual heritage and to cheer on hundreds of horses and riders every summer. The Borders is also a heartland of rugby in Scotland, with the names of our local towns being synonymous with the game and of course Melrose being the original home of rugby sevens. From our historic towns to rural villages, wherever you go you will be struck by the warmth of the welcome in our communities and the real pride people have in living in this wonderful part of the world. With good transport links, an excellent education system and stunning countryside, a move to the Scottish Borders really could be the best move of your life.
