Other frequent visitors are goldfinches, long tailed tits, woodpeckers, goldcrests, grey wagtails and waxwings.
The site lies towards the eastern edge of Hawick and is within fairly level walking distance of the town centre. The site is well served by street lighting and there are bus stops nearby.
Hawick is the largest town in the Scottish Borders and has a wide range of facilities and professional services. The town has both primary and secondary schools along with a good range of shops, sporting and recreational facilities.
The surrounding countryside is noted for its scenic beauty and caters for sporting and outdoor enthusiasts.
Hawick straddles the A7 which links Edinburgh with Carlisle and the town has good road links with the other principal towns in the Scottish Borders.
From the town centre travel east along Weensland Road and Thornwood Lodge is the last property of your left before reaching the filling station on the eastern edge of Hawick. The development site lies on the south west side of Thorwood Lodge, between the lodge and Weensland Terrace.
This is an attractive small residential development site in an excellent riverside location. The site adjoins the River Teviot and has had outline planning consent for 3 detached dwellings—currently lapsed. The planning consent is dated 15th December 2009 and its Ref is 09/00547/OUT.
Mains services are available nearby.
Whilst the site has had outline planning consent for 3 detached dwellings it appears to have potential to be developed with one or two larger detached dwellings if desired—subject to planning.
