Kutty Stane Cottage is positioned in a semi-rural area, between the popular Scottish Borders town of Jedburgh, and the picturesque hamlet of Lanton. Within easy commuting distance to Edinburgh, Jedburgh is undoubtedly one of the favourite towns for buyers contemplating a move to the Scottish Borders. Evolving around the spectacular 12th century Augustinian Abbey, the Royal Burgh of Jedburgh is one of the most historic market towns in the Scottish Borders. This extremely popular and picturesque town boasts a number of buildings of architectural significance including the famous Mary Queen of Scots fortified house and the Victorian County Jail, together with the attractive Market Square. Excellent amenities are available in the town and surrounding area including a good range of independent retailers, which mix well with an eclectic collection of restaurants and bars. Recreational facilities are well catered for in the town, and these include a popular swimming pool and fitness centre, golf course and beautiful parkland. Primary and secondary schooling is available locally, and with enviable links both north and south via the A68 and A7 to Edinburgh, Carlisle and Newcastle. With the opening of the Borders Railway in September 2015, Edinburgh is easily accessible by rail from nearby Galashiels or Tweedbank, giving direct access to Waverley Station in under an hour. The east coast main line railway can also be accessed at Berwick-upon-Tweed approximately half an hour’s drive away, and domestic and international flights can be accessed easily at both Edinburgh and Newcastle Airports.
On a broader note, the Scottish Borders region 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, we encourage purchasers from outwith the area that a move to the Scottish Borders really could be the best move of their lives.
