Monteath Mausoleum

 

By Car

From the North, the Mausoleum is 42 miles from Edinburgh on the A68. After passing through St. Boswells continue south on the A68 for about two miles. As you climb a long hill, the Mausoleum will be visible on the skyline to the right. Continue a further half mile until you see the signs for Lilliardsedge Holiday Park on the right. There is a lay-by on the left just before the entrance. Park here and cross the road onto the grass verge, turning right towards the brow of the hill. About fifty yards before the top of the hill follow a farm track into the woodland. The Mausoleum is a five minute walk along the track. Please close the gates to protect livestock, and always follow the Countryside Code.


From the South, the Mausoleum is 62 miles from Newcastle on Tyne on the A68. After passing through Jedburgh continue for about four miles until you see the signs for Lilliardsedge Holiday Park on the left. There is a lay-by immediately after the Holiday Park on the right hand side of the road. Park here and cross the road onto the grass verge, turning right towards the brow of the hill. About fifty yards before the top of the hill follow a farm track left into the woodland. The Mausoleum is a five minute walk along the track. Please close the gates to protect livestock, and always follow the Countryside Code.

By Bike

If you are confident to cycle on the A68 then follow the directions above. Caution, this is a narrow and fast Trunk Road and is unsuitable for inexperienced riders. There are minor roads to the west of the A68 linking Ancrum with St.Boswells which are easier, but this route will involve a  twenty minute walk through woodland to reach the the Mausoleum.


Public Transport

With the recent re-opening of the Borders Railway, there is now a regular train service from Edinburgh to Galashiels where there is a Bus Interchange, Perrymans run frequent services from here which pass the Mausoleum. Ask for Lilliards Edge Holiday Park, and follow the walking directions above. Do not take the train to Tweedbank, it is a Park-and-Ride station and bus connections are less frequent.

From the south, there is a good rail service to Berwick on Tweed, then by Perrymans bus to St. Boswells, with a possible further change to get to the Mausoleum. In fine weather, you could walk south from St. Boswells following the signposted St. Cuthberts Way and the ancient Dere Street, turning right to cross the A68 at the site of the Battle of Ancrum Moor. Walking on the A68 is inadvisable, it is a narrow and fast Trunk Road and there is no footway.
