Morpeth

Coldstream is a small town in the Scottish Borders area and the traditional Scottish county of Berwickshire. It stands on the north bank of the River Tweed, which here forms the border with England, and is crossed by Coldstream Bridge. The narrow main street, dotted with shops interspersed with housing is still the main road through the town, which also has a golf course and small industrial estate. Other than being a stopping point on long journeys, Coldstream is not a touristy place, and with Kelso and Berwick upon Tweed in either direction, it only needs to serve the locals.

The main road through the town is the A697 primary route from Oxton to Morpeth; however, for 3 miles – from Fireburnmill west of the town to Cornhill-on-Tweed across the river in England – it multiplexes with the A698, which for historical reasons takes precedence. The A698 has followed the Teviot and then the Tweed from Hawick, and once across the river, and indeed the border, continues to follow the Tweed to the coast at Berwick upon Tweed. At the northern end of the town, the A6112 forks off and runs northeast to Duns. On the south side of the river, the B6350 mirrors the A698 west to Kelso, crossing into Scotland on the way.
