Something in the water

Welcome to the Borders

Barrels in the Borders


Hawick has a long and colourful history which can be traced back to the 12th century, when King David 1st granted land to a Norman family, the Lovels. Today Hawick is part of the Textile Trail and is the major centre for the industry in the Scottish Borders. The town therefore has many shops with a large selection of knitwear and cashmere.

 

Make a day of it


Attractions include the Borders Textile Towerhouse in which the heritage of Scotland’s premier textile manufacturing region is presented within a restored 16th-century tower house. Wilton Lodge Park, on the wooded banks of the River Teviot, has 107 acres of riverside and tree-lined walks, and a walled garden. The Hawick Museum and Scott Gallery detail the town’s history and provide a venue for visiting exhibitions.

Our Common Ridings


‘The Horse’ at the end of the High Street commemorates the victory of local youths over English invaders at nearby Hornshole in 1514. During the skirmish, the Abbot’s banner was taken and triumphantly carried back to Hawick. One of the oldest Border Common Ridings, held in early summer, honours this event where ‘The Horse’ becomes the centrepiece for this symbolic festival. Other events in the town include the Summer Festival and the Hawick Reivers Festival.
