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 Borders Railway which opened in September 2015 provides a direct service to Edinburgh in approximately 1 hour from Galashiels and nearby Tweedbank.

On a broader note, the Scottish Borders offers a quality of life that is second to none and in an area of 1,800 square miles there is plenty of space to enjoy in the unspoilt countryside and individual towns. Leave the congestion and overpricing behind and discover what a fantastic place the Borders is to live, work and play. With world class activities and attractions, the area is popular with visitors who come to enjoy mountain biking at Glentress, salmon fishing on the Tweed, walking in the hills and forests, or diving off the Berwickshire coast. The area is also known for the annual Common Ridings when communities come together to celebrate each towns individual heritage and to cheer on hundreds of horses and riders. The Borders is also a heartland of rugby in Scotland with Melrose being the original home of rugby sevens. From historic towns to rural villages, wherever you go there will be a warm welcome.
