Newcastleton is a traditional planned village in the southern part of the Scottish Borders. Also called Copshaw Holm it was established in 1793 by William Keir of Whitehaugh for the 3rd Duke of Buccleuch as a settlement for handloom weavers. Two hotels look out over the village green in the centre and parking is readily available beside them. The easy access route explores a part of the settlement and takes you to a viewpoint by the Liddel Water.
