Frequently awarded as the best-kept village.

The village of Rowanburn was built about 1860 for workers employed in the local coal mines. Major mining ceased with the closure of the main pit in 1922. The Canonbie Coalfields still has large reserves of coal but the seams are very deep. Today the village has won several awards for being one of Scotland's best-kept villages.
