The bypassed and abandoned former route of the B708

The B708 was a short link road to the east of the West Lothian town of Bathgate.

It started on the A8 (later A89) to the east of town and headed southeast across what was then open country to Long Livingston where it ended on the A705.

The road was still in existence after World War II but had been declassified by 1955. However, in the 2000s the road was classified again. It is now the A779, although that road has straightened out most of the B708's curves. That road has also been rerouted to allow it to cross over the M8.
