2 Slighhouses Farm (NT 822593)

James Hutton was the third generation of Hutton’s to farm here. He built the house in traditional style and revolutionised Berwickshire Farming by treating agriculture as a science. Aspects of his farming legacy are still evident today and his interest in geology as seen in the old gateway to his house, which is constructed in rocks of Red Sandstone and Greywacke.
