|Route outline (key)|
The C24 starts on the B6399 next to the bridge over the Hermitage Water, and follows the river upstream as it meanders westwards through the steep valley. Just beyond Billhope, the route turns left and climbs steeply up alongside a tributary to cross the watershed and council boundary below Geordie's Hill. The road continues back down to meet the A7.
