For Hoselaw, turn left off the B6352 heading towards Yetholm. The chapel is very small and only occasional services are held there. It is usually open.

From https://britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/200352948-hoselaw-chapel-church-of-scotland-including-boundary-walls-and-gate-kelso-and-district-ward#.XH0_cRtCe1s

Ecclesiastical building in use as such. Situated near the site of the ancient chapel of Hoselaw, said to have been associated with Kelso Abbey from 1421 (see early Ordnance Survey map). No structural remains of this early edifice survive. According to a plaque set within, this later chapel was "...dedicated to the worship of God in memory of Thomas Leishman DD in the year of Our Lord 1906." Leishman was parish minister from 1855, followed in 1895 by his son, James Fleming Leishman. It was during his ministry that Hoselaw Chapel was built and, in 1912, Linton Church was restored - Peter MacGregor Chalmers being responsible for both (see separate list entry). With good simple detailing both inside and out, Hoselaw remains virtually as it was when first complete - the Phoebe Traquair-like fresco still particularly impressive. A good example of a small parish chapel, this is also a fine and thereby, significant example of the work of Glasgow-based architect, Peter MacGregor Chalmers.

The Roll includes
Thomas Robertson Leishman age 22 Private (2000) 44th Battalion, Australian Infantry.
Thomas had served for three years in the part-time 25th Light Horse in Narrogin, Western Australia and was farming there when he enlisted in March 1916. He sailed from Freemantle in July 1916 and joined his battalion in France in November 1916.
Born 1894 in Golden Grove, Adelaide, South Australia. Son of Matthew William Fleming Leishman (b.1859 in Linton) and Jessie McLeod (Robertson) Leishman, of Linton, Highbury, Western Australia.
Grandson of the Very Rev. Thomas Leishman, D.D. of Linton, Roxburghshire.
Killed in Action on 4 June 1917. and buried in Strand Military Cemetery, Belgium.
He is also named on the memorial plaque in Linton Parish Church but not on the Linton Parish War Memorial.
