Swinside enjoys an excellent rural location at the foot of the Cheviots, approximately 2.5 miles to the southeast of Oxnam. The small settlement lies below Kelso Hill and Lowood enjoys fine easterly outlooks to Kelso Hill.
The surrounding countryside offers an abundance of opportunities for walking, cycling and other rural pursuits. Nearby Oxnam has a village hall and a church while Jedburgh provides a good range of shops, sporting and recreational facilities as well as primary and secondary schools. The A68, which links Edinburgh and the northeast of England, is within comfortable reach by car. The Borders Railway with its regular service to Edinburgh terminates at Tweedbank.
Both Edinburgh and Newcastle, with their amenities and international airports, are within comfortable driving distance of Lowood.
From Jedburgh turn off the A68 at the Waterside Fitness Centre and head up hill on the Oxnam Road. Pass the Mainetti Factory on the left before leaving the town. Continue to Oxnam and approximately half a mile south of the village turn left on to a minor road which leads to Swinside after approximately 1.5 miles. Pass Swinside Hall on your left and take the next left turn on to the private track immediately to the north of Swinside Steading. Follow this track round the Steading to Lowood.
