This article is about the former A752 from Kaimrig End to Moffat. For the current A752 from Thorniewood to Muirhead, see A752.
The original incarnation of the A752 seems to have been very short-lived.
The road started off as the B713 in 1922, but was apparently fairly quickly raised to Class I (A road) status, only to be raised again on 16th May 1935 when the A701 was re-routed away from Peebles and across country to Dumfries, via the whole of the A752.
The road started on the A72 at Kaimrig End, a few miles northeast of Skirling, the nearest village. Heading south it passed through Broughton and shortly afterwards reached the valley of the River Tweed, which it followed upstream as far as the source of the river, the road's summit and the county boundary. The road now descended into the valley of the River Annan and the town of Moffat, where it ended on the A708.
