Towards Melrose

The B6361 is a short B-road to the east of the Roxburghshire town of Melrose.

The road starts on the one-way system in Melrose town centre. Outbound traffic starts on the B6374 (former A6091) High Street and heads east along Buccleuch Street. This road runs straight into the inbound route, Abbey Street, which ends at a roundabout back on the B6374 and the B6359; indeed, this part of Abbey Street was the original northern end of the B6359.

In both directions B6361 traffic has to TOTSO to run along the northern section of Abbey Street, a narrow (then very narrow) road past the abbey itself. The road then widens and enters the fields, bending to the right at a road leading to a pedestrian footbridge over the River Tweed to Gattonside. The B6361 heads east along the rural Annay Road before reaching Newstead.

The road runs east along Main Street before ending on the far side of town at a T-junction on the A6091. Before that road was built, however, the B6361 left Newstead heading east along a road now closed to traffic. It ran under the Leaderfoot Viaduct before ending on the A68.
