Bringing The Old Peter Scott Building Back To Life

Peter Scott knitwear factory has had a long association with the town of Hawick dating back to the 1800s. Located at their Buccleuch Street premises for many a year, until its closure a few years ago, due to the decline in knitwear manufacturing throughout the country.

The Pesco MILLS Development

The factory was purchased in recent times by Pesco Developments Ltd, with a view to turning the former knitwear premises into luxury over 55s apartments.


We are delighted to say the development of the ­first phase of 10 stunning apartments is now underway.


Hawick has long been crying out for such a development, a safe secure residence where like-minded over 55s, can enjoy quality living in a peaceful environment.

All our apartments have been successfully sold, please register your interest for Phase II coming soon.

Start living your retirement dream now, call to reserve your new home.

Old Peter Scott


Many mature couples live in large family houses, a high proportion of which are on the boundaries of town or at the top of a hill, due to the very nature of the town’s layout. They have large gardens, which they now struggle to maintain, or perhaps they reside near a river and have fear of fooding, all points that I have heard people make, in the last few years.
