The B710 is a short B-road passing to the west of Galashiels.
It starts at a triangular junction (with a couple of buildings in the middle of the triangle) on the A7 at Bowland. The road, S1 from the outset, goes under the Borders Railway then over the Gala Water before bending sharply left at the castellated gatehouse to Bowland House. The road continues south along a dead-straight road between two hills.
After reaching a summit the road bends round to the left, descending into the village of Clovenfords, where it reaches a roundabout on the A72. Originally there was a simple crossroads here but the A72 has been moved onto a relief road, so there is a short multiplex to the right before the B710 turns left and continues south, parallel to the Caddon Water. It ends less than a mile further on at a T-junction on the A707.
