The B6362 is a cross-country B-road in southeast Scotland.

The road starts on the A7 in Stow, in the valley of the Gala Water, and heads east along Townfoot before bearing left and climbing steeply out of the valley. The road crosses the hills and soon crosses a cattle grid to become unfenced.

The road continues across the open moorland and starts to descend into the next valley, Lauderdale. It crosses another cattle grid to gain fences on both sides before the descent becomes steeper. Presently the road enters the town of Lauder and reaches a T-junction on the A68.

Originally the B6362 ended here. However, it now multiplexes south for the best part of a mile back into the fields. It then turns left to regain its number and travel east along the original line of the A697 (which later became a spur and was not downgraded until the 1980s). It crosses a narrow bridge over the Leader Water before starting to climb out of the valley, ending at a triangular junction on the current route of the A697.
