Torsonce Mains Farmhouse, Stow, Galashiels. TD1 2SN
Torsonce Mains is situated in a pleasant rural setting approximately one mile south of Stow, six miles north west of Galashiels within the Scottish Borders.
Stow with a population of around 650 thrived during the industrial revolution when it was served by the former Waverley Line and became a small centre of industry focused on tweed, particularly on weaving and spinning.
The Borders rail link to Edinburgh has recently been re-established connecting the central Borders to Edinburgh Waverley with regular services running from Stow Station. The A7 arterial route also provides good road connections to Edinburgh and the main towns within the central Borders.
Stow provides a range of local amenities including village store, church, garage, architects and agricultural machinery dealership.
