The new Borders Railway has brought great excitement to Galashiels, and lots of our guests have been saying how much they’ve enjoyed the train journey. The regular direct rail service is very handy for travelling down from Edinburgh for a night or two in the Borders – perfect for a weekend break, or a spot of cycling, mountain biking, fishing or golf. It’s also easy to do the trip in a day and take in a visit to Abbotsford House, one of the Borders’ magnificent treasures, which is just on the doorstep. And of course the steam train is a must for train buffs and romantics!
Maplehurst Guest House is a short taxi ride or around 15 minutes’ walk from the railway station. Now that autumn’s here, we’re looking for forward to taking George on a first trip to Edinburgh on the train.
