View Larger Map
Chisholme is off the main A7 which links Carlisle to Edinburgh, close to the town of Hawick (OS map ref: Sheet 79, 418121).
Coming from the South take a turn to your left over a bridge towards Roberton along the B711 (just before getting to Hawick) and just after Roberton take a left turn down the hill, once you have passed the old schoolhouse (look for the sign Beshara School). Follow the valley road until the next turn to your left, which takes you over a bridge and up the hill. You will pass four houses and then further up the hill you will reach open moorland with a small wooded area on your left. The turn-off to Chisholme is on your left, at the end of this wooded area. There is a blue sign by the gate into the estate.
