The long road west. Looking towards Kildrochat on the B7077 north of West Freugh airfield.

The B7077 is a road running through fairly remote countryside in west Wigtownshire. With the exception of its far western end it was originally numbered A715, but then the whole route became the A757 in the late 1920s, finally acquiring its present number when the route was downgraded in more recent years.

The road starts by heading west along a straight, flat alignment from the point where the south-westbound B7084 TOTSOs left at Genoch Square. After skirting the north of the former RAF West Freugh (famous for UFOs) the road eventually becomes slightly more winding as it passes a few farm buildings before reaching a T-junction with the A716 by Kildrochet House.

Here we turn right and follow the A-road for just under half a mile before the B7077 sets off again at a turning on the left and a final half-mile brings us, via a road bearing gently round to the right, to the village of Lochans, and journey's end at a T-junction on the A77.
