Swinton is a historic village in the Scottish Borders region, situated 5 miles north of Coldstream, close to Duns, Kelso and Berwick-Upon–Tweed, with the Leet Waters flowing to the north. The original village was named in a land grant to Swein, son of Ufkill dating Swinton back to the reign of King Edgar (1097-1107). The current village was a market village planned and laid out during the 18th century. The Market Cross was erected in 1769, a symbol of the commercial status, and stands on the picturesque village green, which is now also used as a football pitch - the cross is referred to as the ‘12th man.’ Swinton is a popular destination for tourists and Tweed fishermen, there is an inn with rooms and an award winning restaurant. The surrounding area has hotels, self-catering accommodations, shops and places to eat. Attractions include driving tours of the many historic Border Abbeys including Kelso, Melrose and Jedburgh, there are many country houses, estates, gardens and castles. Nearby Kelso has the famous Race-course, a swimming pool and leisure facilities including fishing, golf and walking. The tiny hamlet of Cove has a beautiful harbour and underground tunnel leading to a secluded golden sand beach and St. Abb’s Head is a National Nature Reserve with stunning cliff-top scenery and large colonies of nesting sea-birds.
