General Information
Unit 1 occupies a central position on the southern side of Spylaw Industrial Estate to the south of Kelso.

Spylaw Road is one of the main commercial centres within the town.  Occupants on the estate include Crop Services (Scotland) Ltd, Tweedside Light Commercial Sales, Central Gas Services, Agriparts Borders Ltd, James Hislop Haulage, TL Joinery, U-Store, John Rae Electrical, Spylaw Motors, Travis Perkins, Border Ornamental Iron, The Muscle Factory Gym, Abbey Tool and Gauge, Tom Butler Furniture, Scottish Borders Council Roads Deport and Castlegate Children’s Nursery.

Kelso has a population of approximately 5,639 according to the 2011 population census. Whilst a relatively small town it acts as a local centre for a wide rural hinterland. The settlement is conveniently located within the Central borders approximately 18 miles to the east of Galashiels, 44 miles south of Edinburgh.  Kelso benefits from an historic setting and attracts a high level of seasonal tourist trade.


Building 1 (north) is of traditional stone construction under a pitched roof clad in slate with louvered ventilator running the length of the roof with a more modern single story extension to the west.

The extension would appear a combination of stone and cavity brick construction. It has a flat roof with mineral felt covering. To the west of this there is an open ended lean to canopy built off the boundary wall. This provides a sizeable warehouse/workshop with vehicular access from the east, with four further stores.

The access to the site is understood to be shared with the buildings to the east which are in separate ownership.

Building 1 309.45 sq m (3,330 sq ft)

The site has been measured from an OS based mapping system to a total area of approximately 0.15ha (0.37 acres) or thereby.

Spylaw Road Industrial Estate is one of the principal business destinations serving Kelso and the surrounding area.

The Estate is zoned for the Retention of Business and Industrial Use within the Definition of the Town and Country (Use Classes) (Scotland) Order 1997 and this would support the following uses:

Class 4 (Business/Light Industrial use)
Class 5 (General Industrial)
Class 6 (Storage and Distribution)

This is a mixed use estate so it is anticipated that Scottish Borders Council would also support a range of sui generis (site specific)  and trade counter uses in keeping with the existing uses at the estate, The buildings offer considerable flexibility to be occupied as a whole or a number of separate units.
