Walking and Cycling Route Advice
As keen outdoor enthusiasts, we are familiar with the area's excellent walking and cycling routes and can help and advise you on your choice of routes and destination. We can also provide small maps and leaflets showing the best and most popular routes.

The Scottish Borders has a great sporting tradition that is now being added to greatly through the introduction and expansion of many modern outdoor sports and activities.

From cycling and mountain biking, kayaking, fishing, golf and sailing, through classic hill walking and hiking to the more traditional rugby and football, sports and activities of all kinds can be found in the area.

The area is also perfect to explore by bike - very quiet back roads with spectacular views and excellent mountain trails, including the Internationally renowned 7 Stanes and Kielder Forest, providing fantastic routes for all abilities, both on- and off-road.

The area has a rich history - from the Romans to the Reivers and on through the industrial revolution to the present day. This rich history and the vibrant culture that goes with it mean that there is plenty to visit and experience, and many events to enjoy.

Being the home of cashmere, however this border town also has a fantastic sporting culture, with a proud rugby union tradition, and is developing into an excellent base for exploring the area.

Hawick is the biggest town in the Scottish Borders and lies at the join between the River Teviot and Slitrig Water. The power its rivers provided was central to the growth of the town powering much of the now largely departed textile industry.

Hawick suffered greatly in the cross border wars between England and Scotland in the 1300s, 1400s and 1500s, and 1513 most of the town's men of fighting age were killed at the Battle of Flodden. The following year the town was threatened by a raiding party of English troops, but they were fought off by the boys, or 'Callants' of the town, who captured the English flag.

This event is commemorated by a statue of a horse and rider at the north east end of the High Street: and by the annual 'Common Riding', in which several hundred riders gather to ride around the boundaries of the burgh. This takes place in early June each year.

Hawick can boast itself to be the birthplace of two sporting greats, Bill McLaren and Steve 'Hizzy' Hislop. Although a professional rugby player in his own right, Bill McLaren became most famous for his commentating, with a career at the BBC stretching from the early days of TV to 2002.

Steve Hislop meanwhile was a motor cycling legend, winning numerous Isle of Man TT events and various motorbike championships. The Hawick museum has a room dedicated to Hizzy including the displaying of a number of his old motorcycles.

The Museum also provides an insight into both the textile industry within the borders, and the turbulent and often violent past of the town and region.

The Borders
Missed by many as they head north, the Borders is a fantastically rich cultural and historical area within stunning scenery. Visit beaches, mountains, vast rivers and lochs and huge expanses of moorland or forest, while at the same time taking in the music, the Common Riding season and the borderland history.

Although famous for the more traditional sporting activities such as rugby, the area is a truly outstanding place to participate in the majority of outdoor activities and sports, and if you like to enjoy the outdoors at a slower pace, both golf and fishing feature prominently in the area.
