|Getting there:||Only 31 miles from Jct44 of the M6 on a regular bus service (First service 95/X95) from Carlisle railway station to Edinburgh (52 miles from Edinburgh city by-pass). Teviothead is between Langholm and Hawick on the A7 – the bus will stop on request. The Sunday timetable would make it difficult to travel to the event on Sunday morning but possible to return to either Edinburgh or Carlisle on Sunday afternoon. Signposted from the A7.|
|Terrain:||At the village of Teviothead, just south of Hawick in the Scottish Borders. Fast open hillside, with intricate contour detail and areas of runnable marsh. Some rock detail and numerous small quarries, depressions and re-entrants which were created during the building of numerous drystane dykes (walls). As used for the 2006 Harvester Relays. Now with 10% more boulders!The area is made up of the Tullie family farm of Bowanhill, together with the neighbouring farms of Binks and Colterscleugh and is the training ground for British and Scottish squad members James, Douglas, Andrew and Sarah Tullie.|
