Newcastleton Village Information

The planned village of Newcastleton also referred to as Copshawholm was founded by Henry Scott the 3rd Duke of Buccleuch to take the place of the original village of Castleton as a centre of development for flax, wool and cotton handloom weaving. 

Newcastleton is also home to the Armstrong and Elliot's two of the local clans that are very much part of its history. In earlier times the Liddesdale valley was referred to Border Reiver Country known then as "The Debated Land".

Our village has a heritage centre and many more great attractions to explore and learn more of its great history. 

Newcastleton hosts events such as a Music Festival, the Copshaw Common Riding and the Holm Show. The great Hermitage castle is not far from the village with tales of witchcraft and sorcery makes a great place to visit.

As well as having a great historic value you will find lots of outdoor activities to do or a relaxing tranquil environment to enjoy the wildlife or just relax by the river.
