Kershopefoot is a small hamlet in northernmost Cumberland, sitting along the south bank of the Kershope Burn, which marks the border of Roxburghshire, as that river enters the Liddel Water (which assumes the boundary duty thereafter).

Kershopefoot is best well known for its magnificent scenery as the Kershope Forest stretches for many miles eastwards from the village up into the fells. There is a lodge house here, Kershope Lodge, almost a mile from the hamlet.

Between 1862 and 1969 a passenger station on the Waverley Line variously known as Kershope or Kershope Foot was located here.[1]
