B6359 Hawick – Melrose
Dingleton Road, Melrose

The B6359 is a cross-country B-road in west Roxburghshire.

The road starts on the A7 on the northern edge of Hawick and heads northeastwards into open country, crossing the undulating terrain of this part of the country. It passes through a few hamlets but no places of any size before meeting the B6405, bending sharply to the left as it does so. A couple of miles further on is the village of Lilliesleaf, the largest settlement en route. Here the road meets the B6400 and is the dominant partner in a multiplex through town until that road turns off about a mile further on.

The road continues northwestwards. It crosses a narrow bridge over the Ale Water and bears sharply right immediately afterwards at a crossroads with unusual priorities; the road straight ahead is the B6453. After another few miles of rolling fields the A699 is crossed. The B6398 for Newtown St Boswells turns off shortly afterwards, after which the road detours to go round the Eildon Hills. The road soon reaches Dingleton, which is essentially a suburb of Melrose.

Melrose is entered along Dingleton Road. The road goes under the A6091 bypass to the south of the town centre before reaching a roundabout on the B6374 (pre-bypass A6091). The B6359 ends here, although originally it continued ahead along Abbey Street to end on the B6361; this road is now one-way towards us and part of the B6361 one-way system.
