Scottish Borders

Situated in Liddesdale in the SW Scottish Borders, the scattered settlement of Saughtree lies 8 miles (12 km) northeast of Newcastleton, at the junction of the Dawston Burn and the Liddel Water. The name 'saugh' derives from the Scots word for 'willow' and relates to two large willow trees which once grew here. Saughtree House is Victorian, Saughtree Church dates from 1872 and the adjacent former manse from 1891. There is also a farm and a few cottages. Saughtree Railway Station, ¾ mile (1.3 km) to the north, was once a halt on the Border Counties Railway, but this closed in 1956. The station buildings have been refurbished as a private home and a section of track relaid. Saughtree Fell rises to the northwest.
