B6350 Maxwellheugh - Cornhill on Tweed

Carham

The B6350 runs along the southern bank of the River Tweed between Kelso and Coldstream, paralleling the A698, which follows the same route on the northern bank. Our road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s, making it an early example of a recycled number.

The road starts in Maxwellheugh, a suburb of Kelso on the opposite bank of the Tweed, and heads northeast out of town, going under the A698 with no junction to enter open country. We follow a flat route in the valley bottom with the river hardly visible. After going through Sprouston the river meanders to the north but we continue straight, necessitating a bit of a climb as we move out of the valley.

Presently we cross a burn to enter England and then rejoin the Tweed, which now marks the boundary. We run alongside the river for a short stretch before we it bears off north again. We go through the tiny village of Carham and the larger one of Wark before coming alongside the river again, with the river in a sizeable meander to the east. As it starts to double back on itself we continue ahead to enter Cornhill on Tweed, ending by the war memorial at a T-junction on the A698.
