I'm considering moving from Kent to Polmont (or nearby) and looking for opinions on the area.
Having been up recently to identify areas, transport links, schools, facilities Polmont looks like a great place to bring up my 3 year old, reduce my current (4hour daily) commute and effectively improve our living.
I'm a graphic designer, my partner is a small animal vet, she would want to work relatively locally and I'd be happy to travel to Edinburgh/Glasgow/Stirling/etc for a job.
I wondered if anyone else had experience similar in terms of moving and job advice and are Polmont and the surroundings as pleasant as they look? (and yes I did see the prison and I really wasn't put off).
It's not an especially attractive place, but I've heard it's a nice place to live . Reassuringly close to the hospital. Good train service to Edinburgh and Stirling. Within day trip distance of lovely countryside.
