Near the River Tweed

The B6437 is a cross-country road in Berwickshire. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s.

The road leaves the A6112 north of Coldstream and follows the River Tweed downstream, remaining on the Scottish side, before bearing left away from the river. The road then follows a winding route northwards, passing no major villages for some distance. Presently we go through the village of Whitsome. The next village is Allanton, after which we go over the Whiteadder Water to reach Chirnside and the A6105. The road ahead into the village centre has always been unclassified and so there's a short multiplex to the right before our road regains its number by turning left.

On the eastern edge of Chirnside we meet the B6355 at an awkward junction where both roads have to TOTSO. Our road then continues in a northerly direction to skirt the village of Auchencrow and then reach the B6438, where we TOTSO right. The B6437 is then the dominant number in a multiplex which lasts until the other road turns off. We then descend steeply into the valley of the Eye Water, going over the river then under the East Coast Main Line. The road then bends sharply right then left to end at a T-junction on the A1; this final zigzag runs along the original line of that road.
