B7062 Peebles - Traquair
Tweed Bridge

The B7062 is a secondary road along the valley of the River Tweed in Peeblesshire. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1930s.

The road starts at a mini-roundabout on the A72 at the western end of Peebles High Street by the Old Parish Church and heads south over the Tweed Bridge before bearing left to follow the river downstream. Although we pass a few houses the road is largely bound with green spaces. After diverging from the river we pass through a modern housing estate to enter open country. The road continues along the flat land of the valley bottom.

The valley narrows as we squeeze between the river and Tor Hill, then we pass to the south of Kailzie Gardens. The road then returns to the river to enter Cardrona; on the near side of the village we meet the B7088, which follows a short route back to the A72. We now start to head southeastwards, still following the valley.

After skirting a wood and running alongside the river for a few hundred yards the road continues on to skirt the grounds of Traquair House. We cross a burn then climb to journey's end at a triangular junction in Traquair itself, where we meet the B709. The village war memorial is in the middle of the triangle.
