Newcastleton, Scottish Borders. This pleasant village, the principal settlement on Liddesdale, lies in the flat valley bottom. It is an interesting example of late l8th century planning, having been created in 1793 by the 3rd Duke of Buccleuch as a handloom-weaving village. It has a main street with a central square and small squares at each end. The side street has houses on one side only.
The surrounding countryside saw some of the earliest major activity of the Forestry Commission.
