Buccleuch is a hamlet in the parish of Ettrick, Selkirkshire. It is located off the B711, on the Rankle Burn, to the north of the Craik Forest, by Phenzhopehaugh Hill.

The Buccleuch name comes from 'Buck Cleugh' which is a little to the east of the hamlet which was the original dwelling place of the Scott family. They became Barons of Buccleuch in 1606, then earls (1619) and dukes in 1663.

Other nearby places include the Alemoor Loch reservoir, Stanhope Law, Wardlaw and the Ettrick Water, and Ettricklaw, the site of the monument to James Hogg, the Ettrick Shepherd.
