Hawick is a large town in the Borders region of Scotland, situated north of Langholm and south of Selkirk. The historic town dates back to the 12th century with the remains of the Hawick Castle excavated at Hawick Motte near the town centre. Hawick has suffered a turbulent history with most of its buildings dating back to the 19th century as earlier buildings were destroyed during battles with the English. Hawick is famous for its textile industry with fine woollens, cashmere and tweeds. Traditional weavers still operate in the area and the factory outlets ensure the town is a popular tourist destination. The town has shops, hotels, holiday accommodation and plenty places to eat. Historically interesting features include the Drumlanrig’s Tower Visitor Centre with exhibitions to uncover Hawick’s history, heritage and culture and the Hawick Museum which holds information on the hosiery and knitwear industry. Cragbank Woods is a popular National Nature Reserve abundant with ancient woodland and wildlife. Hermitage Castle stands north of town claiming to be one of the most haunted castles in Scotland. The Hawick Common Riding Festival is held annually on the last Friday each July; this celebration dates back to 1514 commemorating a group of local youths who captured the ‘Hexham Pennant Banner’ from English Troops camped nearby.
