Heriot Toun in winter

Helpful Maps

Heriot Toun Studio is located in a beautiful rural part of the Scottish Borders and is easy to find.


If you're coming from the north, head south on the A7 from Cameron Toll. Pass Newtongrange and Gorebridge (still on the A7), about 7mls later you'll see the sign for Heriot. If you're coming from the Galashiels direction, head north on the A7 passing Stow and Fountainhall, about 9mls further you'll see the Heriot turnoff on your left, clearly signposted.

From the sign at the A7 turnoff to Heriot, drive along the B709 which leads to Heriot Primary School and Innerleithen. At about one mile from the A7, you'll see the studio behind the farmhouse up on the right. White poles mark the bottom of the track. Drive up the track and round the top to the studio where you can park at the door.

ps - if you use a satnav, don't listen to it. It takes you a mile further down the road to Borthwick Hall.

Winter Time

One of the lovely thing about the studio is that it's just off the beaten track and accessed via a private farm track ensuring a high degree of peace and quiet. The down side to this is, the council does not clear the track in the winter.

Please bare in mind that we're in a hilly rural area (altitude 800ft asl) and at times the track and parking area will be slippy; if you manage to get your car up the track in snowy weather, you might not manage to get it out again - all of the studio land is on a slope. So please check the weather forecast and local conditions before you arrive, then park at the bottom of the track first and check it out before you drive up to the studio. If in doubt, leave your car at the bottom of the track and walk the short distance to the studio. 
Feel free to give us a ring to check conditions.

The up side is - it's a great place to be in the winter! We'll even give you a sledge...
