Morebattle is a popular village in the foothills of the Cheviots lying four miles from Yetholm and eight miles from Kelso. The village includes a primary school and local facilities include store, butchers, post office, hotel/village pub and village hall. Secondary schooling and shopping is available at Kelso one of the most attractive and unspoiled towns in the Borders, with good educational and sporting facilities and many quality shops. Activities available locally include hill walking, fishing and golf at the championship standard course at the Roxburghe.

Travelling from Kelso, follow signs for Morebattle on the B6436. Immediately before entering the village, turn left taking the Hownam road, turning right at the T junction. Follow this road for approximately 2.5 miles. Just before Hownam village, you will drive over a bridge over the Kale Water and then uphill. Look out for a small white sign on the left marked 'Howgate'. Take this turning and follow the road with the building plots being on your left hand side.
