The property is situated on Wood Street, within walking distance to the centre of the town and to the new Borders Railway station with regular services into Edinburgh, perfect for commuting or for leisure. The historic market town of Galashiels offers an extensive range of amenities, with an excellent variety of shops, supermarkets, public parks, 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 with regular train services running on the Borders Railway with a journey time of under an hour.

A choice of airports include Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle and the east coast main line runs from Berwick-upon-Tweed connecting Edinburgh with London.
On a broader note, 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.
