About the location
Hawick 21 miles; Carlisle 24 miles.
The village of Newcastleton, sits just a few miles from the border of Scotland with England, in the Liddesdale Valley. It was founded in 1793 by the Duke of Buccleuch ('Buckloo’) and is also known as Copshaw Holm, or The Holm. Founded to create a centre for the weaving trade in the area, over time, Newcastleton attracted other trades including farmers, carpenters and shoe makers. Further development occurred with the arrival of the railway in the late 1800s, when the famous Waverley Line journeyed from Edinburgh to Carlisle. Historically a region of strife dating from the arrival of the Romans in the 1st century, the subsequent Norman invasion and the cross border battles between English and Scots, Liddesdale is at the centre of what was known as The Debatable Lands. The village today is little changed, and is famous for the nearby Hermitage Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots met her secret lover the 4th Earl of Boswell, and the ruin offers an imposing and spectacular sight filled with intrigue. The village is also popular with tourists due to its range of outdoor activities, which include mountain biking on the 7stanes trails, fishing, walking, wildlife watching, and an outdoor adventure centre. A vibrant and exciting holiday destination for all the family.
Note: Max. 6 adults.
