Cragbank Wood

Forests & Woodlands

    Cragbank Wood is a Scottish Natural Heritage Woodland located in the Scottish Borders to the south of Hawick.

    This is the largest area of ancient ash-elm-hazel woodland left in the Scottish Borders. It forms a narrow band running across the steep slopes of Wolfehopelee Hill and has a rich variety of plants and butterflies. Springtime brings a dense carpet of wildflowers, whilst summer sunshine calls out butterflies to flit through the woodland glades. The Reserve still feels like a remote sanctuary far from the hustle of everyday life. There is a car park at Hyndlee to the south of the forest. There are ell-defined paths through the fores but please be aware that the site is on a steep slope.
