Harestanes Countryside Visitor Centre

Parks & Gardens

Ancrum, Jedburgh, Scottish Borders, TD8 6UQ

    Harestanes Countryside Visitor Centre lies on St Cuthbert’s Way, one of Scotland’s most popular long distance paths.

    There is a large play park and the opportunity to enjoy a range of countryside walks for all ages and abilities. There are regular events, exhibitions and  activities.

    The café, which was recently refurbished, sells a range of fresh home baking including tray bakes, scones and FairTrade coffee.

    The centre is well used by cyclists as the local network of quiet public roads includes the 55-mile 'Four Abbeys Cycle Route' which passes through Harestanes.
