B705 Leadburn - Blyth Bridge
This article is about the first classified B705 to the south of Edinburgh.
For the present B705 in East Ayrshire, see B705

The A701 (former B705) looking towards Leadburn

Very short lived, the old B705 was part of today's much-extended A701 - namely the nine miles between the Leadburn crossroads and the A72 junction at Blyth Bridge. The old A701 route south of here was to Peebles (today's A703).

Within ten years of classification the A6094 had subsumed the whole route and the B705 number reassigned to East Ayrshire. Given ten more years, and the A701 had slotted into its current place, re-shortening the A6094, and hijacking swathes of B713 and A708 all the way to Dumfries.

Little of the physical route has changed, mapping evidence seems to suggest only a minor realingment near Rommanobridge to remove a double-bend.
