|Route outline (key)|
The A36 is a medium-length A-road in central County Antrim.
It starts at Kilwaughter, to the west of Larne, by turning west off the A8 dual carriageway. The road continues westwards, winding somewhat to begin with as it crosses the Mountains of Antrim but later becoming straighter as it levels out.
At Moorfields the road turns northwestwards and it continues for a short distance further before ending at the Larne Road Roundabout on the Ballymena bypass, where it meets the A26 and detached part of the M2, for which it is junction 10. Originally the A36 continued into the centre of town to end on the A26 but the original western section of the A36 has been upgraded and renumbered A26.
