Melrose recently took the title of the “Best Place to Live in Scotland” in a new national ranking by the Sunday Times and is regarded by many as the most desirable and picturesque town of the Borders. Centrally located in the Scottish Borders, Eildon has easy access to the A68 which links to Edinburgh and Newcastle to the north and south respectively. The A7 is also easily accessible, and the Borders Railway Terminus at Tweedbank is a short drive away, with a journey time to central Edinburgh of under an hour. Melrose and nearby St Boswells offer excellent local amenities that include primary schools, independent shops including the renowned Main Street Trading, public houses, hotels, restaurants and sporting facilities. Eildon falls under the catchment for the nearby Earlston High School which is highly regarded. The Borders General Hospital is only a short drive away. The region is well known for its beauty and the lifestyle it offers and with both country and coastal pursuits on hand, the area is an attractive and enviable part of the country to reside in.
