Borders Railway Operated by ScotRail

Starting in April 2015, Borders Railway departs every half hour from Edinburgh to Tweedbank. The train travels along the southeastern border between Scotland and England.

There are stops in Galashiels, Stow, Gorebridge, Newtongrange, Eskbank and Shawfair. There are hop on/hop off privileges and tickets can be purchased round trip (about $25) or one way (about $15). Tickets can be either purchased ahead of time online or at the railway station.

There are sites of interest within a 15 to 30 minute walk from some of the stations. Near Eskbank is the medieval Rosslyn Chapel and near Tweedbank is the 12th-century Melrose Abbot and Sir Walter Scott's house, Abbotsford House.
