B6367 Middleton Mains - Oxenfoord Mains

The B6367 is a rural B-road, almost entirely in Midlothian.

Near Tynehead

The route starts at a T junction on the A7 high on Middleton Moor, indeed at 272m this is the summit of the route. The hills of southeast Scotland spread out to the south, but the B6367 is soon aiming for a lower altitude. After a short downhill run, it kinks left and heads north along a much longer straight across more-or-less flat terrain. It crosses fields and passes a small patch of woodland before some snaking bends take over the Borders Railway by the former Tynehead station. Immediately afterwards the route TOTSOs left; the road ahead is the B6458 and the B6367 appears very much to be the poorer route. Continuing north, now almost single track, the route winds through trees but it quickly widens again. This section of road is hillier than before, as it dips into a valley, then climbs over a ridge, before finally descending to the tiny village of Crichton.

As it enters the village, it TOTSOs left then right to cross an unclassified road, which continues ahead at the second junction to reach the stunningly sited Crichton Castle in its secluded valley. The B6367, meanwhile, heads north once more and drops steeply down into the valley of the Tyne Water, which is loosely followed downstream. The road stays high on the hillside above the river in its narrow wooded valley as if follows a series of short straights to Pathhead. It enters the village as the traffic-calmed Crichton Road, with houses on the right looking out across the valley. It soon reaches the A68 at a contorted crossroads, where the B6367 has to give way to a fifth arm immediately before meeting the A68. This is an unclassified side road which comes in from the left almost parallel to the A68, and then turns abruptly across the B6367, forcing another TOTSO just a few yards short of the A68.

There is then a short multiplex east along the A68, Main Street, before the B6367 turns left along the narrow Ormiston Road to regain its number. After passing a few houses, it leaves the village behind and heads out across the fields in a series of straights connected by slight kinks. Further along the route is lined with strips of woodland on at least one side. It skirts the grounds of Preston Hall before bearing to the left and ending soon afterwards at a wide T-junction on the A6093.


As originally classified in 1922, the route only ran from the A7 to Pathhead. It had already been extended to its current length by 1927 when it is shown on the revised edition of the MOT map.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Hayfield - Tynehead - Ford
