The closest town is Gorebridge, a delightful former mining settlement that became a popular holiday destination in the Victorian era, when people first started to escape the cities for a holiday in the countryside and a look at some beautiful scenery. As, of course, many still do today! The local station at Gorebridge reopened in 2015 as part of the new Borders Railway project and connects to Edinburgh Waverley in 25 minutes.
