The A721 (former B714) in Newbigging

The original B714ran between Carnwath and Kirkdean in southern Scotland. Owing to its importance it was quickly upgraded to A-road status and became the A753 before 1927. However this number was also short-lived as the route was renumbered again, becoming the A721 in 1934.

Starting on the A70 in Carnwath the B714 headed east across the North and South Medwins (two streams), passing through the village of Newbigging between the two. The route then detoured slightly to the south to avoid the Black Mount. The A702 was crossed at Melbourne at a junction that was then a simple crossroads. On the far side the road crossed a ridge before ending on the A72 to the south of Blyth Bridge.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Carnwath - Kirkdean
