Carter Bar is the point where the A68 crosses the border between Northumberland in England and Roxburghshire in Scotland, marked by a large stone in the side of the road. A layby alongside the border usually accommodates hot snacks and ice cream. Just to the north, the A6088 leaves the A68 bound for Hawick. The old course of the road to the south is still visible, slightly to the east of the present route.
