Welcome to Earlston
the 1700 or so residents,
who love this beautiful Borders village with its terrific community spirit,
facilities and its general all round greatness,
welcome you to our website.
OTT? We don’t think so,
and after you’ve had a look around we’re sure you’ll agree. Lovely location and getting
to and from Edinburgh is no problem by car,
bus or the scenic Borders Railway.
And whether you like to roam the gorgeous forests and
stroll by the river (or have a swim),
climb the Black Hill,
meet with like-minded folk in the many social clubs,
fish for salmon,
sea and brown trout,
watch or play rugby,
golf and bowls,
eat out or just chill and chat in a cosy pub with a glass of something nice,
Earlston is the place. We hope the info contained here will bring you to the same

Where is Earlston?
Earlston's on the A68 which runs from Darlington in County Durham to Scotland's
through beautiful countryside,
over rivers Tees,
Wear and Tyne,
up through the high moors of Northumbria,
the Kielder Forest,
over the Carter Bar into Scotland and on through the lovely,
unspoilt Borders. We're about 30 miles South of Edinburgh, 1 mile North of the River Tweed,
into which our River Leader flows. Check out the views below to get an idea of how nice it
is and how lucky we are to live here.
