Hawick is a town
in the Scottish Borders council area and historic county of
Roxburghshire in the east Southern Uplands of Scotland. It is 10.0
miles (16.1 km) south-west of Jedburgh and 8.9 miles (14.3 km)
south-southeast of Selkirk. It is one of the farthest towns from the
sea in Scotland, in the heart of Teviotdale, and the biggest town in
the former county of Roxburghshire. Hawick's architecture is
distinctive in that it has many sandstone buildings with slate
roofs. The town is at the confluence of the Slitrig Water with the
River Teviot. Hawick is known for its yearly Common Riding, for its
rugby team Hawick Rugby Football Club and for its knitwear industry.
At the 2001 census Hawick had a resident population of 14,801.
The town hosts the
annual Common Riding, which combines the annual riding of the
boundaries of the town's common land with the commemoration of a
victory of local youths over an English raiding party in 1514. In
March 2007, this was described by the tourism Rough Guide as one of
the best parties in the world.
People from Hawick call themselves "Teries", after a traditional
song which includes the line "Teribus ye teri odin".
