Tweedbank is a large village south-east of Galashiels. Tweedbank, as the name suggests, sits adjacent to the River Tweed and approximately 500 metres downriver from Abbotsford House, the historic home of Sir Walter Scott. Visit this beautifully preserved mansion house and discover the work that Scott himself put into building the house, planning the gardens and laying out much of the woodland on the estate. Gun Knowe Loch, which is actually a man-made lake, is popular due to its abundance of swans and ducks. Amenities located next to the Gun Knowe Loch include some shops, and a bar/restaurant, which has outdoor seating available in the summer.
Each year in May, the village celebrates a week-long fair in which a local Tweedbank Lad and Lass are appointed. Tweedbank also boasts an all-weather sports complex, football pitch, indoor bowling club and an all-weather play area. The village is served by Tweedbank Railway Station, the terminus of the Borders Railway, that runs between the Central Borders and Edinburgh. If you are a keen cyclist, from Tweedbank, you can join the National Cycle Network Route 1 or try the 4 Abbeys Cycle Route.
