About Castle Wynd and Crofts Road

These roads surround Lauder and are believed to have been just outside the boundary of the Burgh wall, therefore 'Backside' referring to the 'back' of the wall. These roads allowed passage to places beyond the town when the gates were closed at nightfall. It may also have been used as a medieval cowgate along which cattle were driven to pasture outwith the Burgh settlement.
When you reach The Row, turn left in the direction of the main street again.
