Heriot is a small rural village in the Moorfoot Hills of the Scottish Borders, roughly halfway between Edinburgh and Galashiels, in the heart of the countryside. Out of earshot and sight from the A7, twenty minutes drive from the Edinburgh City bypass, and with two Borders Railway stations just ten minutes away at Stow and Gorebridge, there is a busy village hall, and a well-run country primary school whilst the surrounding area is perfect for walking, cycling and riding. Nearby Lauder offers facilities including a post office, banking and supermarket, whilst Galashiels has all the local amenities expected of a sizeable town, including local shopping, a cinema, swimming pool, two large 24-hour supermarkets, restaurants and cafés. Within, a half an hour’s drive, Straiton Retail Park provides a Sainsbury’s supermarket, Boots, an M&S food store and other high-street names along with one of Scotland’s two IKEA stores.
