Borders - General Travel - Tartan Army Message Board Jump to content



Recommended Posts

Might as well go in this section as any!  I really don't know a lot about the Borders, tends to be the bit I travel through to get somewhere else. Our kids are now in the NE of England.  I'm thinking of quitting my job and moving, South of Scotland would be closer to our kids than we are now.  Any advice where to look, where to avoid?

Thanks, any particular reason for avoiding Hawick and Galashiels?

They are biggest towns (roughly 12k pop).

the town's centres are quite tired and full of charity shops or lying empty. 

the smaller town's don't have large supermarkets and therefore seem to do better with local trading.

The best schools are Earlston and Peebles.
