About the neighbourhood
The small village of Newcastleton, with a resident population of 800, is nestled in the valley of Liddesdale, gateway to the Scottish Borders. Surrounded by hills and forests with fabulous scenery, abundant wildlife and historical sites, perfect for getting away from it all and recharging your batteries, a great place to visit for the day - or longer. Five hundred years ago the hills would be ringing with the sound of clashing steel and fighting Reivers, today visitors experience a warm welcome. Newcastleton forest is home to one of the world-renowned 7stanes mountain bike trails from where you can cycle across the Scottish English border to Kielder where even more walks and trails abound. Rock UK, our local activity centre will be happy to indulge if you'd like to try abseiling, kayaking...
Getting around
To appreciate all our scenery it is advisable to travel to the village by car. Car hire can be arranged from any mainline station, our nearest is Carlisle. The village offers a local bus service but this is only viable if you wish to travel to our local towns; Hawick in the north and Carlisle in the south. The M6/M74 is only 30 mins away making Dalkeith House a great location for friends and families to meet who are travelling from the north, south, east or west.
