Welcome to the Eddleston website

Eddleston is a delightful conservation village in the soft rolling Scottish Borders’ countryside. Only four miles north of the county town of Peebles and eighteen miles south of Edinburgh, we are an accessible rural community within easy reach of retail and leisure facilities.  We sit in the Tweeddale West ward of Scottish Borders Council,  our local authority. The newly-completed Eddleston Water Path (opening January 2023) offers a traffic-free alternative route to Peebles, linking Eddleston to the scenic path network as it continues along the Tweed Valley.

Eddleston Parish Church

Extensively rebuilt in 1829 after a fire when the vestry and chancel were added. The church bell, which hangs in the belfry, was cast in 1507 and is one of the oldest in the country.

It was thought to have been donated by the Murrays of Blackbarony to celebrate their arrival in the village. The original graveyard around the Church has headstones dating back to the 18th Century, identifying the local farm owners and other tradesmen such as candle makers and shoemakers.
