Scottish Saltire - St. Andrew's Cross Scotland from the Roadside... a journey round Scotland!

Southern Scotland
Scottish Borders


Lying on the north bank of the River Tweed, the fortified town of Berwick-upon-Tweed is a part of Northumberland in England. However, it is also a Royal Burgh of Scotland and changed hands at least thirteen times during the 12th to 16th centuries.

From Tweedmouth, just south of Berwick-upon-Tweed, the A698 heads roughly southwest following the River Tweed on the English side of the border with Scotland. At Cornhill-on-Tweed the A697 then crosses the Tweed, on the bridge dating from the 1760s, and the border itself into Coldstream. The A697 then continues northwest to join the A68 at Oxton.

The A698 continues its route southwest through Kelso before joining the A68 just north of Jedburgh. Alternatively from Kelso the A699 heads roughly west, crossing the A68 at St. Boswells, to join the A7 at Selkirk.
