Melrose Bridge is a bridge of many names. It is also known as The Whirls Bridge, Darnlee Bridge, Lowood Bridge or Bottle Bridge. Despite all these names, there is just one bridge of two arches which crosses the River Tweed in Melrose. The bridge carries a single track road with traffic light control at either end, and is a multiplex with the B6374 and B6360. Pedestrian walkways are marked with white lines, and there are pedestrian refuges over the central piers.

The refuges rise up as shallow pilasters above the triangular cutwaters, to the top of the undecorated parapet. The abutments at either end are buttressed as the wing walls extend across the low lying river banks.
