Heriot, New Zealand
The township is likely not to have been named after the Scottish border town of Heriot (unlike other local towns named after Borders places, such as Kelso and Roxburgh), but may have been named for from the maiden name of the wife of early settler William Pinkerton.
The main economic activities in Heriot are related to livestock and forestry.
