Acreknowe Loch Walking & Running Route

The Acreknowe Reservoir loop is a walking route over gravel path.

A circular walk from the car park at Wulliestruther Loch, which is two miles from Hawick, travels along gravel path and is a man-made lake that used to supply drinking water to Hawick, constructed in the 1880s and lying at the eastern boundary of Hawick Common. 


Acreknowe reservoir is roughly 22 acres in size and stocked for fishing. 

On the Friday of the Common Riding the mounted procession passes here, riding in single file along both sides of the reservoir; the Cornet rides on the Hawick side, with the followers free to choose.
