The B7016 is a cross-country road in south Scotland. It was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932.

The road starts to the north of Forth on the A706 and heads southeastwards past an opencast and several small villages. We climb a hill to arrive in Braehead, then go through the village and down the hill. After passing a turn-off for Auchengray we reach a T-junction on the A70 and multiplex left along that road (and the A721) over the Edinburgh branch of the West Coast Main Line and into Carnwath.

In the centre of town we bear right to regain the B7016 number and head south before bearing left to avoid the River Clyde. We pass several more villages and pass through an increasingly hilly landscape before reaching Biggar. There's another three-way multiplex (A72/A702/B7016) left through the town centre, with the A702 dominant. After turning right in the top half of Biggar we continue east through a few miles of lovely countryside and enter Broughton, where the road ends on the A701.
