A701, The Crook Inn, Tweedsmuir
Built in the early nineteenth century, The Crook Inn is a Category C listed building (Historic Environment Scotland LB49036 LinkExternal link ) notable now for its stylish 'roadhouse-style' Art Deco additions of 1936.
The A701

At one time, the A701 was the major road between Edinburgh and Dumfries. The southern section between Dumfries and Beattock is still a trunk road, forming the primary route link between Dumfries and the A74(M) for northbound Glasgow/Edinburgh traffic. The northern section has now been largely downgraded in favour of the A74M/A702 route to Edinburgh but is popular with some (particularly motorcyclists) as an alternative to the A7 or A702 routes and it is signposted as a scenic route to Edinburgh from the motorway.
