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.

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.
