Welcome to Newcastleton or Copshaw Holm as it is known locally

Hello and a very warm welcome to Newcastleton, known locally as Copshaw Holm.

The small village of Newcastleton, with a resident population of 850, is nestled in the valley of Liddesdale, gateway to the Scottish Borders.

We are surrounded by hills and forests with fabulous scenery, abundant wild life and historical sites, perfect for exploring, painting or photographing. It is great place to visit for the day - or longer (Sat-Nav TD9 0QD).

From mountain biking to walking, golf and fishing check out the activities or just come and soak up the atmosphere.

Five hundred years ago the hills would be ringing with the sound of clashing steel and fighting Reivers, today visitors experience a warm welcome.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Holm.

This project is being part-financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Scottish Borders LEADER 2007-13 Programme.
