The B7080 in north Ayrshire forms an alternative route to the Irvine Bypass, passing through a number of peripheral communities. For all but the final 800 m of its course the road is named Long Drive. The road was built around 1980 and seems to have had its present number from the beginning.

The route begins at Eglinton Interchange, a roundabout junction between the A78 and A737, at the northern end of the Irvine Bypass. Our road is linked by long sliproads to the east-facing A78 sliproads. Heading first east past the south side of Eglinton Country Park, the road then curves southward to reach Mill Roundabout on the A736. This A-road takes over our route for the next kilometre, to Stanecastle Roundabout, although the road was opened as part of the B7080.

From Stanecastle the B7080, now a 50-mph dual carriageway, resumes its southward course, by way of Towerlands Roundabout (a local distributor junction with sliproads on its northern side), to reach the large Newmoor Roundabout, junction with the B7081. From here it is less than 300 m to the Greenwood Interchange, a grade-separated dumbbell junction with the A71.

Now single-carriageway and NSL, the route continues south through the Riverside and Shewalton Roundabouts before turning right at Oldhall Roundabout, from where a short westward run takes us to the Newhouse Interchange, a return to the A78 and A737, and the end of our route.
