A701 at Broughton
A701 at Broughton
Broughton is a village in Tweeddale in the Scottish Borders area. The village is on the A701, near to where the Biggar Water flows into the River Tweed. It is about 7 km east of Biggar, and 15 km west of Peebles.
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.
