About This Route

This is a pleasant short circular route crossing the Leithen Water and the River Tweed over the Haughhead Viaduct part of the infrastructure of the old railway line. Haughhead Viaduct was a railway bridge and is category B listed, comprising six-spans with a combination of stone piers and iron girders. The Toll House once collected money to fund the road works that were undertaken by Turnpike Trusts after 1751.
