Parkside, Buccleuch Road
Parkside is a family home in a much sought after residential area of Hawick. It boasts an elevated position on the outskirts of the town but is still convenient for the town centre and all its amenities. Parkside lies within the catchment area of several well-respected Primary Schools such as Drumlanrig and Wilton and a short distance from Hawick High School. All the surrounding Border towns are easily accessible, as are Edinburgh, Newcastle and Carlisle. The newly opened rail station at Tweedbank is only 17 miles away and offers a regular rail link to Edinburgh on a daily basis. Hawick is the largest town in the Borders and is famous for cashmere, rugby and its renowned and spectacular Common Riding in June. The area is also well acclaimed for its top quality field sport such as shooting, salmon and trout fishing and other leisure activities such as golf (Hawick, Minto, Roxburghe and The Woll are all nearby), walking, cycling and mountain biking.
