The largest town in the Borders, Hawick’s existence can be traced back as far as the 600s. Its setting on the River Tweed and the Slitrig Water was responsible for the early settlement’s growth. In the 19th century, the rise of textile mills put the town on the map, and Hawick remains synonymous with quality knitwear.
A varied property market makes Hawick and its surrounding villages a very desirable place to live. Hawick’s proximity to the A7 means it's easily accessible from Selkirk, Galashiels and Melrose, while Newcastle Airport is around an hour’s drive and an extra 15 minutes brings you to Edinburgh Airport.
