About

Denholm Village is situated in the Scottish Borders some 50 miles south of Edinburgh, and is 16 miles from the Scotland/England border at Carter Bar. 

Hawick is the nearest large town which is 5 miles to the west and Jedburgh lies 6 miles to the east.

 

Denholm is laid around two Greens, with friendly shops and pubs and a Post Office. It lies within the ancient parish of Cavers.

Denholm, today, is a quiet village with two pubs, a Restaurant/Cafe, an Antique and Interiors shop, a butcher, a general store/Post Office, a hairdresser, a coffee shop and a garage. It has about 400 houses and is expanding all the time with new developments springing up on the outskirts of the village.
