|Route outline (key)|
The B7023 is a largely rural road in south Ayrshire. It was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932.
The road starts at a TOTSO on the A719 beneath Mochram Hill and heads east, zigzagging through a wood before descending into Maybole. We enter town along Culzean Road and go over the Ayr to Stranraer railway line then pass the station entrance. We then skirt the castle grounds where the road TOTSOs right, keeping the same street name. Barns Terrace, ahead, is a spur of the B7023 which soon reaches the B7024.
The final section of Culzean Road passes the southern end of the B7024 then reaches the A77 immediately afterwards; this is crossed via a staggered crossroads. We continue to descend and leave town along Crosshill Road. After crossing a narrow burn (seemingly too small to create the large valley we're in) the road starts to climb again then continues southeastwards across undulating terrain.
Presently we cross the Water of Girvan and enter Crosshill. After running along King Street we TOTSO right by the war memorial and follow Dailly Road back to open country. The road then runs parallel to the Water of Girvan for about half a mile before ending at a TOTSO on the B741. Continue ahead for Dailly.
