The C61 is a lengthy dead end following the long and winding valley of the Bowmont Water deep into the hills along the Border. It starts on the B6401 at Primsidemill to the west of Yetholm and heads south, upstream past scattered farms; some lie alongside the road, others hidden in folds of the hills down tracks and drives. At length, the road crosses the river below White Law, but just before reaching Sourhope, it turns right and re-crosses for the final stretch down to Cocklawfoot.
