Galashiels with a population of approximately 14,000 is one of the principal towns in the Scottish Borders. It is generally considered to be the main administrative, retail and social centre for the region, effectively serving a population of in excess of 110,000.
In recent years Galashiels has been subject to considerable investment. Developments have included the Gala Water Retail Park, two new supermarkets to the east of the town centre and significant transport infrastructure works. The infrastructure works have included the Galashiels inner relief road and, the Borders Railway link which has re-established passenger services between Edinburgh Waverley and the Central Borders. The journey time from Galashiels to Edinburgh city centre is approximately 55 minutes, with departures every 30 minutes. On weekdays the first train departs from Edinburgh at 0545, the last at 2355.
The town features a wide range of High street and out of town retailing, restaurants, cafes and local amenities. There is also a significant student population, as home to the Heriot Watt University School of Textiles and Design as well as having a campus of Borders College.
