|Route outline (key)|
The A736 was the Glasgow-Irvine primary route - no longer.
Braehead - IrvineThe A736 once left the A77 at Shawlands in Glasgow but now has its northern terminus on the A8 at the Braehead shopping centre on the edge of Renfrew. It heads south, crossing under the M8 at Jct 26, then through Hillington industrial estate, crossing the A761 Paisley Road and meeting the B762 at a traffic-light-controlled T-junction. To here, the route has also been known as B770 and A754 and this is where the road picks up its old route from Shawlands. Now it crosses the main A726 (a trunk route when not in Glasgow City!) and heads SW through Barrhead.B roads off to either side, until it reaches Irvine. Unusually, no intersection on the A78 Irvine bypass was built for the A736, so to head N or S the B7080 has to be followed. the A736 continues into Irvine to meet the A737 (old A78).
