The Neighborhood

Walkerburn was created originally as a Cashmere mill. This has closed down, and the village now thrives on local small businesses and outdoor activities such as mountain biking, cycling, riding and walking. It also has a rugby club and a bowls lawn. There is a general store/post office and a club serving alcohol that welcomes visitors. Nearby, the larger village of Innerleithen has a co-op supermarket and several restaurants and take-aways as well as a number of boutique shops.

Getting around

The number 62 bus travels from Edinburgh through Peebles to Galashiels every 30 minutes. From Galashiels, visitors can get further buses to all the border towns such as Kelso, Selkirk, Jedburgh and Hawick. The bus stop is just 300 yards from the Old Railway Station. There is also a reliable taxi service operated from Innerleithen. The best way however, is by bikes, and these can be hired from 2 establishments in Innerleithen.

Other Things to Note

One of the 7stanes mountain bike areas is inbetween Innerleithen and Walkerburn, just 1.5km from the Old Railway Station. You pass a riding centre on the way. In Innerleithen, just 2 miles away, there is a 9-hole golf course, and the championship course of Cardrona is just 4 miles away. The Tweed river runs just 30 yards from the cottage, and this beat is particularly famous for large salmon and trout caught between Septmeber and November. Various concerts and events happen at Traquair House only 3 miles away.
