SITUATIONFouledge Cottage enjoys an incredible scenic rural location a short distance to the southwest of Skelfhill Farm - about 8 miles southwest of Hawick. The cottage has a south easterly aspect to the front. With only one entry/exit way to/from Fouledge Cottage this makes the property very secure with no passing traffic. Despite its peaceful privacy the cottage is within easy reach of the A7, one of the main roads linking Edinburgh with the north of England. The cottage enjoys some tremendous outlooks to Skelfhill and Holywell Rig and the surrounding countryside offers an excellent range of walks, hill biking and jogging trails as well as other country pursuits. The area is also rich in wildlife and an excellent location for the keen bird watcher. The total lack of light pollution makes the location excellent for observing the Milky Way, stars and planets. Hawick is an important Borders town lying on the River Teviot and provides a useful shopping centre along with primary and secondary schools and a wide variety of recreational and sporting facilities. Hawick has good road links with the other principal towns in the Borders and the A7 links Edinburgh with Carlisle.
