Galashiels Travel guide
Galashiels : Michelin's recommendations
This town is not far from the famous Tweed Valley, in the narrow depression of the Gala Water. Visitors can explore its history in Old Gala House, a 16C stone house with ceilings painted a century later. The Lochcarron Cashmere Wool Centre is devoted to the town's industrial development and the production of tartan, the broad-checked Scottish material.
