Hawick and Area

I will be travelling around Scotland in June on a search for information on relatives that moved to Canada from Scotland.I will be in Hawick in mid June.I will not be driving a car.Could someone please give me some advise on these few questions?

How can I get to Hawick from Glasgow,either by bus or train?

Is it difficult to travel to and from Hawick to Jedburgh and Melrose with out a car?

I have been reading this Forum and would like to stay one night at a medium priced Hotel in the town center,any suggestions.

Thank you, Tom Miller

From Glasgow I think you will need to get a train to Edinburgh (frequent and fast) and then bus to Hawick (see link below)

There are no rail services in Borders area. You are dependent on buses.

You would need to get a bus from Hawick to Galashiels, change and then catch another bus to either Melrose or Jedburgh.

The bus timetables can be found here:


I'll leave you to play around with times and work out whether it is doable.

Another link to help plan your journey is www.traveline.org.uk

- you pick the area you want i.e. Scotland, and then just give your start and end points e.g. Glasgow Airport / Hawick. You can then juggle the time of day earlier / later until you get what you want. I had a quick look and it seems to be about 3.5h from the airport to Hawick. Sorry, can't help with accommodation question.

just in case you don't already know, Hawick has a Heritage Hub which could possibly help with your ancestry search
