Pathhead lies on the historic route south on the modern A68. Thomas Telford’s impressive five span viaduct over the River Tyne leads into the village from the north.

Pathead is an attractive village, home to a thriving folk music community. The remains of Soutra Aisle, a medieval hospital founded in 1164, are nearby. On the outskirts is the impressive Oxenfoord Castle, a unique and exclusive use venue.
