B711 Hawick - Tushielaw Inn
Near Alemoor Reservoir

The B711 is a cross-country B-road in southern Scotland.

It starts on the A7 to the south of Hawick and heads west. It immediately crosses the River Teviot at a narrow bridge before continuing (as an S1 road) upstream along the valley of the Borthwick Water. This valley is reasonably narrow and so the road contours along the side of the hill to the north of the stream.

After a couple of miles the road reaches the hamlet of Roberton before continuing ahead to climb out of the valley as the stream bends to the south. After a few bends the road follows the edge of a wood to the top of the ridge before going down the other side into the next valley. It reaches the L-shaped Alemoor Reservoir and crosses a bridge across the lake halfway along.

After leaving the reservoir behind the road climbs again to go round the northern edge of a wood before descending to Buccleuch in the valley of the Rankle Burn. This valley is then followed downstream to where it joins the valley of the Ettrick Water. The latter stream is then crossed and the B711 ends immediately afterwards at a T-junction on the mighty B709.
