B6397 Earlston - Kelso
Yarlside

The B6397 is a rural road in southeast Scotland. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s.

The road turns off the A6105 east of Earlston and winds eastwards to a crossroads where it has priority turning right. Here the road straightens out and follows a wooded route round a few sharp corners and present reenters open country. It's not long before the only place of any size on the route, Smailholme, is reached. However, this village is tiny and we just go round two sides of the churchyard before reentering open fields.

We continue across undulating terrain, climbing to the next road junction, where the B6404 bears right. The unclassified road to the left is the quickest route to the A6089 but our road continues ahead through a couple of cuttings before bearing left to head towards the A-road ourselves. We skirt the grounds of Floors Castle before ending at a T-junction on the A-road.
