The B103 heads southwest from Belfast. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s.
The road starts on the A1 in the Lisburn suburb of Lambeg and heads east, immediately going under a low, narrow bridge carrying the railway line from Belfast to Dublin. We then appear to leave town, although we're actually passing a golf course; the road goes through the old village centre then crosses the River Lagan.
The road bears round to the right to avoid a second river crossing, at least for now, and passes another golf course then goes over the disused Lagan Canal. After going through Ballyskeagh we go over the M1 and pass through Drumbeg to reach another crossing of the River Lagan.
We pass between a golf course and the Sir Thomas & Lady Dixon Park (named after a former Lord Lieutenant of Belfast and his wife) before becoming built-up once more. Initially the road runs between housing estates but presently becomes lined with buildings itself. The end of the road is reached at a roundabout on the A55.
