The C11 is a lengthy route which follows the west bank of the Gala Water, opposite the A7 on the east bank. There are several intermediate bridges across the river, all of which are spurs of the C11. The route starts in the north on the B709 at Heriot, and seems to have been largely unaffected by the re-routing of the B road with the reopening of Borders Rail. Almost immediately we find the first spur, crossing rail and river to meet the A7 at Hangingshaw. Continuing south, the route never strays far from the river bank before Fountainhall, where a spur connects to the A7, which has briefly crossed to the west bank of the River.

After a brief climb up the hill, the road sticks even closer to the river and railway to reach Stow, where a second bridge carries a spur over to the A7. A couple of miles further south and another spur bridges the river at Ferniehirst. A little beyond, however, the road turns south west and climbs up between the hills to reach the headwaters of the Caddon Water. This small stream is then followed downstream to meet the B710 above Clovenfords.
