    Is there a point of interest between Lauder and Stow along the B6362. My sister took my mums ashes to scatter there and I wasn’t with her. Now my sister has died and I would like to carry out her wishes and to scatter her with my mum as close as I can. I knew she met family members therefore I imagine there must be a place for people to park.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Best wishes

    Hi Rhona,,

    there are a few parking spaces along the B6362, up on top of the hill. There is also a stone cairn along on the left hand side as you are travelling from Stow towards Lauder. Are you local to the area? It’s a lovely walk along the top, with lots of lovely views – I would be happy to meet and have a walk along with you.
