B7035 Prestwick - Auchincruive
This article is about the former B7035 near Prestwick.
For the current B7035 between Girvan and Dailly, see B7035

The B7035 was a short link road through the Ayrshire village of St Quivox.


Looking SE along the former B7035 towards St Quivox

Prior to the construction of the airfield at Prestwick, the B7035 started in Prestwick itself. It forked off the A77 (present A79) in the town centre and ran down Boyd Street before turning left into St Quivox Road. This continued straight ahead at the point where Indale Avenue now turns left, with modern housing estates now built across the old alignment. Beyond the housing, the route crossed what is now a golf course and then the airfield to meet the A719 (present A77) at Highfield, a little to the south of the surviving portion of the route, forcing a dogleg. The route resumed after this short multiplex and latterly started at a LILO junction on the southbound carriageway of the dualled A77 on the edge of Prestwick Airport. From here it headed southeast along a narrow road. A sign at the beginning warns of a low bridge; this is soon reached and the route passed under a freight railway line to enter St Quivox. Apart from the church, few buildings line this road so it soon re-entered open country and followed a straight tree-lined road southeastwards to end at a T-junction on the B743 opposite the Auchincruive estate.


The B7035 was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932. After the airfield opened, the central section of the route was lost, but the Prestwick end retained its number for some time, last being shown by the OS on the 1957 1:25,000 map. However, this only extended as far as the Adamton Road North crossroads. Curiously, a few years later the 1960 edition of the 1:2500 map shows the B7035 starting further south and using the full length of St Quivox Road instead of Boyd Street, while the further end extends beyond Adamton Road North, without a definitive terminus. It is similarly shown on the 1968 1:10,000 sheet, even though it disappeared from smaller scale OS maps after 1957. This is, however, the last known depiction of the B7035 in Prestwick itself.

South Ayrshire Council ceased to list the St Quivox section of the route as the B7035 in the mid 2010s, and the OS downgraded it on their mapping between 2013 and 2016. The former St Quivox B7035 is now listed as the C150 but with many maps still showing it as a B road. The number was promptly re-used on the current route between Girvan and Dailly.
