The town, with a population of around 12,600, is a major commercial centre for the Borders region.The town is known for textile making, and is the location of Heriot-Watt University's School of Textiles and Design, Galashiels Academy and the main campus of Borders College at Netherdale.The latter is sung by some of the townsfolk each year at the Braw Lads Gathering.Sir Walter Scott built his home, Abbotsford, just across the River Tweed from Galashiels.Robert Coltart was a weaver in the town, but also made confectionery in nearby Melrose.The song was created as an advertisement, and hence was renamed as "Sugar Candy" when played by the BBC.
In 1969, the historic Waverley Line which connected the Scottish Borders to the national rail network was closed as part of a wider series of cuts to British Railways.
The new Borders Railway, which links Galashiels with Edinburgh, saw four new stations built in Midlothian and three in the Scottish Borders.
For most of the route the original line was followed with 30 miles (50 kilometres) of new railway line built.
In 1599 Galashiels received its burgh Charter, an event celebrated every summer since the 1930s by the "Braw Lads Gathering", with riders on horseback parading through the town.
The Paton Street drill hall was completed in the late 19th century.
