Shepherds Cottage, which has never made the market before, is a unique and charming one/two-bedroom stone-built detached cottage occupying the most fabulous rural situation just off the old Abbotsford Road on the outskirts of Galashiels. Accessed from a shared farm track, in a secluded position with a beautiful outlook over the rolling countryside, it provides an excellent opportunity to extend the current footprint, subject to the necessary permissions.
Currently a successful holiday cottage with five-star reviews, the property lies only a short distance from excellent transport links and amenities which can be found in the bustling town of Galashiels the home of The Great Tapestry of Scotland, along with a large selection of shops. The property is also within close proximity to the Borders Railway which runs to Edinburgh, with the terminus located at nearby Tweedbank, and a further station in Galashiels.
Internally, the accommodation, lies across two levels and comprises one main bedroom, occupying the first floor, a bathroom, a sitting room, a kitchen, and a dining room/bedroom two. With good storage, and fitted wardrobes, the property also benefits from gas fired central heating, with the benefit of a wood burner in the sitting room and an Aga.
Externally, the land amounts to around 0.80 acres or thereby (see map), with an attractive burn running through the foot of the garden ground, plus a large private parking area, which is a welcome addition.
With all amenities close at hand including the aforementioned railway station, most Border towns can be reached from this central location, with the nearby A7 having direct routes to Edinburgh and Carlisle.

Shepherds Cottage sits off the old Abbotsford Road on the outskirts of the principal Borders town of Galashiels. With a population of 12,000, the town offers a full range of shopping facilities, including Tesco, ASDA, Boots, Next, WH Smith and Marks & Spencer.
Local tourist attractions include The Great Tapestry of Scotland, which has recently opened, Old Gala House and Abbotsford House, the former home of Sir Walter Scott, with its award-winning visitor centre as well as many other attractions in nearby Melrose and other Border towns.
Among the independent shops there is also a cinema, a health centre, a swimming pool, gym, dentists, orthodontist and a new Transport Interchange built primarily around the new train station in conjunction with the Borders Railway which is a particular bonus.
Local sports teams include Gala RFC, Gala Fairydean FC, and Gala CC and local festivals include the historic Common Ridings held in the summer which is of particular note.
There are also a variety of outdoor pursuits in the area that include fishing on the River Tweed, fieldsports, horse riding, golf, lawn bowling, mountain biking, and a selection of walks including the Southern Upland Way.
Galashiels has six primary schools, and nearby Melrose is home to St Marys Preparatory School with secondary schooling at Galashiels Academy. The Borders College and Heriot Watt University also have a campus in the town, and there are also a number of churches in the area.
The Borders General Hospital, the largest hospital in the Scottish Borders is only four or so miles away, on the fringes of Melrose.
Galashiels sits in an easily accessible area and can be reached by the A7 which runs through the town and provides the links to Edinburgh or the north of England. The area is also served by the Borders Railway which runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, with the aforementioned station in the town. There is also a busy bus service which runs from the Interchange, beside the railway with links to Newcastle and Carlisle in the South, as well as Edinburgh and the other Border towns.
