Newcastleton 7 Stanes

Like many of the other 7 Stanes locations, Newcastleton is a haven for wildlife – the hide overlooking Priesthill and the stunning Liddel valley is a fantastic place for spotting various species. With some stunning views of the Border hills from certain sections of the route, it’s a privilege to take in some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland and England.

There’s a great choice of walking trails for those who want to explore on foot, and there are mountain biking options for everyone, from family friendly tracks to more adventurous routes.

The Border Stane

A sculpture representing the union, this stane stands close, and parallel, to the Scottish – English border. On the north side, Auld Lang Syne is inscribed to represent Scotland and on the south side, representing England, are the words of Jerusalem. The hole in the middle allows people to stand on either side of the ‘border’ and shake hands through the sculpture.

Sculpted by artist Gordon Young, there is a unique stone (or ‘stane’) sculpture at each of the 7 Stanes locations, giving them their name. You can find them in different locations around each of the routes.


There is car parking and a picnic area at Newscastleton 7 Stanes, but for public toilets, free showers and places to eat, drink and shop, you’ll have to head into Newcastleton itself.
