Campsites near waterfalls in Wauchope Forest guide

Overview

Close to Hawick in the Scottish Borders, Wauchope Forest has a criss-crossed network of walking trails, cycle tracks and bridle paths that lead visitors through a landscape of mixed woodland with thick canopies and shimmering streams to viewpoints where you can see the Cheviot Hills straddling the border between Sctoland and England and, on a clear day, even peek over the border to Northumberland. As you explore, you might spot red squirrels, black grouse and goshawks overhead. It’s a fairly off-the-beaten track destination that you may have all to yourself.

When to go

Spring through autumn is the best time to visit Wauchope Forest. Mild, sometimes warm, temperatures and long daylight hours mean that you can enjoy the outdoors to the fullest and have your best chance of spotting wildlife. It is a year-round destination, however, but be aware that winter days are short and often wet. Those who wish to set up camp should note that motorhomes and campervans are typically permitted to park overnight at the Wauchope car park from April through October.

Know before you go

  • Having your own transport is essential for reaching Wauchope Forest. 
  • You’ll find a selection of places to shop, eat and drink in Hawick and Newcastleton, both around a 20-minute drive away. There are also public toilets in Hawick.
  • The weather is always unpredictable in Scotland. Even in the height of summer, bring warm, wet weather gear.
  • When visiting any natural setting in Scotland, be sure to follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
