Route

Torrs Warren

The B7084 is a rural road along the northern side of Wigtownshire's Luce Bay.

The route turns off the A75 to the west of Glenluce and heads west past a golf course. The road soon bears left; at one time the B7084 turned off the A75 here but now there is no connection to the A-road. We continue across the flat land and cross the Piltanton Burn before going through a wood. On the far side we TOTSO left and the B7077 continues ahead.

We now head southwest with the dunes on the left (part of a danger area) and RAF West Freuch on the right. After a road junction we pass between a sand quarry and farmland. It's not long before we reach journey's end at a T-junction on the A716. Sandhead is just to the left and the A-road continues beyond in the direction of the Mull of Galloway.

History

On classification in 1922 the B7084 did not exist, although the whole of the present route was classified. The eastern end of the road was the A75 mainline, then the road was numbered A715 as far as the present B7077 junction and B736 beyond. The latter number was short-lived, however, as the A715 was rerouted along it in the mid-1920s.

The A715 was downgraded around 1990 and the B7084 took its place. The road was extended east when the A75 Dunragit bypass was built in 2014.
