The A769 was a short link road in central Kirkcudbrightshire.
Starting on the A702 to the east of St John's Town of Dalry, the route headed south, passing the occasional building but no settlement of any size. After passing a left turn to the village of Balmaclennan the route ended at a T-junction on the A712 to the west of the village and a mile or so east of New Galloway.
Unclassified in 1922, the route followed by the A769 was first classified as the B7000 in c1925 before being upgraded to Class I before 1932. It subsequently survived until at least 1988, but was downgraded to Class II status once more, becoming the B7075 before 1993.
