The B7088 is a short link road across the River Tweed in Peeblesshire. Originally the river was crossed here by a ford which fell into disrepair in the second half of the 20th century. The bridge was built in the 1990s but the road seems to be later; the number does not appear on maps or signs but does appear on the list of public roads published by the Scottish Borders Council.
The road turns off the A72 in the settlement of Horsbrugh Ford, named after the adjacent old river crossing which is no longer visible. We follow the river upstream a short distance to a roundabout, which provides access to a hotel and golf course, then turn left to cross the River Tweed. Just upstream is an old railway bridge, now used for foot access to the golf course.
We pass the old station (now Cardrona Village Store) on the right and more of the golf course on the left to reach a roundabout where Cardrona itself lies to the left. We turn right and pass some modern flats, ending shortly afterwards at a T-junction on the B7062.
