Full description

Teviothead is a scattered rural community approximately 8 miles south of Hawick. Access is from the A7, one of the principal routes in to the Scottish Borders which links Edinburgh with Carlisle.

The surrounding area is noted for its scenic beauty and is rich in poetry, song and tradition. The area offers excellent opportunities for hill walking, mountain biking, horse riding and other country pursuits.

Hawick has a good range of shops, sporting and recreational facilities as well as both primary and secondary schools.

Teviothead Cottage is an attractive, traditional detached cottage with adjoining outbuildings in a private, yet accessible, rural location.

The cottage has oil fired central heating and double glazed windows. Bathroom fittings include a bath with shower attached, basin and WC.

There are two useful outbuildings attached to the rear of the property (a garage and a former byre) and there is a separate timber framed shed (3.5m x 13.7m) clad with corrugated iron and timber.

The property sits within spacious garden grounds which are largely in grass and include some mature trees. Dryden Burn runs through the garden and there is ample off road car parking.

Please note that the public bridge providing access to Teviothead Cottage has been affected by flooding in the past and has undergone repairs by Scottish Borders Council.

Mains electricity. Private water. Private drainage. Oil fired central heating

A stone on the front of the cottage suggests that Henry Scott Riddell, the Scottish poet and song writer credited with writing “Scotland Yet”, lived and died in Teviothead Cottage - his death being in 1870. He was buried in nearby Caerlanrig Church yard and a monument to his memory has been erected on nearby Dryden Fell.
