Auchencrow

Auchencrow Village


Auchencrow is a small village in the Scottish Borders, sitting at the foot of the Lammermuir Hills and about 3 miles from the village of Reston on the B6437 and 4.5 miles from Eyemouth.

Although the origins of the village and it's name are unclear, in 1210 the village was referred to as Aldenegraue. To the south of  the village is the site of Billie Castle which was burnt in 1544 and later captured by English soldiers in 1548. Only very minimal remains are visible today.

Auchencrow has a small village centre and a local pub, "The Craw Inn"
