Welcome to the Crailing, Eckford and Nisbet Community website. These three tranquil villages, located between Kelso and Jedburgh just off the A698 and nestled either side of the River Teviot are set in stunning scenery and abound with community spirit, wildlife and an abundance of fresh air. In the 18th century this was predominantly an agricultural area although the numbers of people who worked the land are now vastly reduced there are still hamlets remaining such as Caverton, Cessford, Grahamslaw, Ormiston & Ulston all with their own stories to tell. A boundary map for our area can be found by clicking on the "Community Resources" tab and then "Community Council" the boundary map can be found under Files and Documents.
This interactive website aims to keep residents engaged and informed on what is happening in their local area whilst at the same time demonstrating to potential visitors and future residents what a truly wonderful place we have the good fortune to live in.
The Community Council are proactive in their approach and Eckford Village Hall and Lothian Hall, Crailing host events throughout the year, these halls are also available for private hires such as family gatherings, committee meetings, training days etc.
