Burnhouse

The B706 is a link road in Ayrshire. The road was originally unclassified but had gained its current number by the early 1930s.

The road starts on the A735 in the centre of Dunlop and heads west out of town along a traffic-calmed road, which gets remarkably narrow in places. On reaching the church the road bears right to enter open country. It climbs out of town before turning sharply left and then descending again to cross the Lugdon water and enter Burnhouse, where it crosses the A736. After a mile of undulating countryside the next settlement, Barrmill, is reached, where the road goes under a narrow bridge carrying a disused railway line.

The road passes the Defence Munitions depot (which the railway line used to serve) before reaching the A737 Beith bypass. This is crossed at a staggered crossroads and the road then heads into the town centre, descending to end on the B7049 (pre-bypass A737) at a T-junction.
