Bannatyne Street, viewed from Lanark railway station
The B7017 is a very short link road in Lanark. Owing to the road's short length its history is not fully known; it was originally unclassified and had gained its number by the 1950s. The road number is not signposted at all.
The road starts at traffic lights at the northern end of the A743 High Street and heads east along Bannatyne Street, passing the town's railway station, which is the southern terminus of the Argyle Line. After bearing right into Ladyacre Road the B7017 ends by a retail park at a roundabout on the A73.
