Pronounced ‘hoik’ by locals, Hawick is the largest town in the Borders with a thriving 200-year-old industry producing knitwear and hosiery.The town of Hawick is also famous for producing a peculiar sweet called Hawick Balls!
The English raised Hawick to the ground in 1570, and a remnant of this turbulent history is displayed every summer in the Festival of Common Riding, when locals circumnavigate the town, traditionally to ensure other towns had not encroached on their common land.
