Community Council

Crailing, Eckord and Nisbet Community Council is a legally recognised group of local people with an interest in their community. The main role of the Community Council is to represent its local area, to consult with local residents, and pass their views on to public sector organisations such as Scottish Borders Council, NHS Borders and the Scottish Executive. We are particularly keen to improve local amenities and facilities for the benefit of our residents and to develop community relationship between the three villages.  Click this link to view Boundary Map

Current Projects

Nisbet Churchyard Restoration Project
An application for funding via the Nisbet Initiative Collective was submitted to the Localities Bid Fund to enable the Nisbet Churchyard Restoration project to proceed.  Thanks to local support this bid was successful and the project is currently being implemented. Delays have been incurred due to Covid Restrictions but this matter is still very much in-hand and will continue as soon as circumstances allow.

Walking: It is hoped that the Wooden Track a circular route starting and ending in Eckford will be upgraded in the near future to make it more accessible to locals and visitors.
