Route Description

Newsflash: the Scottish Borders Walking Festival 2017 includes at least one route incorporating part of the Clovenfords Turnpike. Running from 3-9 September, the base for the 23rd year of this popuar festival is Peebles and Tweeddale. Other historic routes featured are the Gypsy Glen Drove Road, the Minchmoor TrackStobo Old Drove Road, the Cauldstane Slap and Cross Borders Drove Road, the Post Road through the Meldons and the Old Biggar Road.

We don't yet have a survey for the Clovenfords Turnpike, so would very much like to hear from anyone who has used this historic route.

Heritage Information

The Clovenfords Turnpike can be clearly seen on the OS second edition 6" mapping, taking a higher line through the valley of the Caddon Water than the present road. It is locally known as the Green Road.
