This article is about the B7035 listed by South Ayrshire Council between Girvan and Dailly.
For the presumed defunct B7035 near Prestwick, see B7035 (Prestwick)

The B7035 runs inland from the Ayrshire coast at Girvan to Dailly, and was first classified in the mid 2010s.

It starts at the A77 / A714 Shalloch Park Roundabout on the southern edge of Girvan and follows Coalpots Road around the edge of the town before passing under the railway. It continues north east across fields to meet the B734 near Whitehill, from where the two routes multiplex eastwards for nearly 2 miles to Old Dailly. This first part of the route is completely unsigned, giving road users no inclination that it has become a B road. It is, however, now widely marked on maps.

The B7035 resumes at a crossroads in Old Dailly where the B734 TOTSOs right up the hill. The B7035 continues ahead, again unsigned, and follows a series of long, fast flowing bends eastwards across fields and past patches of woodland. There are no houses or farms along this section of the route as it climbs gently to its summit of around 75m, before dropping just as easily. A tighter double bend at Maxwelston sweeps the route across the little Craig Burn, and then around past a golf course before it begins the descent into Dailly. The route then curves along the southern edge of the village on Edlinton Terrace, with houses to the left and fields stretching away to the south. Another sweeping bend takes it past the cemetery and up to a crossroads on the B741. This is another TOTSO, with the B741 coming in from the left and then continuing ahead, terminating the B7035. Again, this junction doesn't sign the B7035.

The route was first listed by South Ayrshire Council in the mid 2010s, and by 2016 the OS had updated their mapping to show the new B7035, the older route in St Quivox having been downgraded to an unclassified route at the same time. It is strange, therefore, that almost a decade later it has not been signed, and there are still some maps which show the older B7035 in preference to this new route. The whole route is a well aligned S2 carriageway, but comparison with older mapping shows that it still follows the same basic alignment that it did in the 1950s, suggesting it has long been an important route, and its classification was perhaps overdue.
