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 route was originally numbered as the B713 in 1922, but was apparently fairly quickly raised to Class I (A road) status, possibly as early as 1926, 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 route 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 route's summit and the county boundary. The route then descended into the valley of the River Annan and on to the town of Moffat, where it ended on the A708.
An official document from 16/05/1935 details the following changes: Renumbered as A701
