Stichill is a village in the historic county of Roxburghshire, a division of the Scottish Borders. Situated 2 miles to the north of the Burgh of Kelso, Stichill lies north of the Eden Water and 5 miles (8.0 km) from the English Border at Coldstream.



Stichill is a constituent part of a parish that includes the nearby settlements of Hume and Ednam.

Stichill is mentioned as a manor of Sir Thomas Randolph, later the Earl of Moray, when in 1308 it was considered forfeited to Edward I of England and granted to Adam Gordon.[1]


The village lies in the historic territory of the Pringles, a notorious Riding family of Border Reivers. The Pringles of Stichill are a cadet branch of the Pringles of Smailholm. Robert Pringle of Bartingbush purchased the lands of Stichill in 1628, and his grandson, another Robert Pringle, was created 1st Pringle Baronet of Stichill, in the Baronetcy of Nova Scotia, in 1683. The present laird is Lt-Gen Sir Steuart Robert Pringle, KBC, 10th Baronet. Please visit: *
