1. Leave Paxton heading towards Hutton, passing the village hall on you left. Just past Clarabads farm turn right towards Foulden. This will take you downhill and over the pretty Whiteadder Water before ascending a steep hill on the way to Foulden. The road continues past Cozy Catz cattery on the right before reaching the junction with the A6105.
2. Take the road straight ahead to Ayton. This road takes you up some long hills before finally reaching the top where you will be rewarded with views across the countryside to Ayton Castle and the sea beyond. Proceed along this road before arriving at a T junction. Turn right towards Ayton, passing under a railway bridge before arriving at another T junction where you will see Ayton church directly ahead of you.
3. Turn left at the junction and you will enter the village of Ayton, passing Ayton Castle on the right.
Turn right at the junction to cross the border and back into the village of Foulden. Stop at the view point beside the village green on your left where on a clear day you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view past Berwick-Upon-Tweed to both Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle in the distance.
