B716 Carluke - Carstairs
This article is about the original B716 from Carluke to Carstairs.

Near Kilncadzow

The B716 was a short B-road in central Lanarkshire.

It started on the A73 in the centre of Carluke and headed southeastwards via Roadmeetings into the hills. After crossing the A706 the road descended to go over the Mouse Water before ending on the A70 at Carstairs.

Owing to the road's importance it was quickly upgraded to Class I status, becoming the A754; however, this number did not last long either. It was renumbered again in 1935, becoming part of the A721, which it remains, although the western end of the B716, Carluke High Street, is now pedestrianised.
