Town Updates

Historically trailblazers in the electronics industry, Galashiels’ pioneers led the way in an expanding global market. Today, pioneers exist in new industries and sectors, creating their own history and a new chapter of stories.
The Borders railway has offered Galashiels an unprecedented opportunity to establish itself as a leading business destination. It has already transformed connectivity and in doing so, has unlocked the town’s potential for growth. Now, with artisan and innovative businesses launching and operating across a range of sectors, coupled with ongoing investment and commitment to infrastructure, the town and its immediate surroundings can once again lead the way. In this section you can read about local ambition and diversification, investment and opportunity, from the evolution of the Scottish College of Textiles to Heriot Watt School of Textiles and Design, to Rink Hill, a contemporary holiday home in the Galashiels countryside which is the result of a long harboured desire from its owners to create a unique space from which to appreciate the beauty and diversity of the area.
