The A745 (former B727) towards Castle Douglas

The B727 was a short B-road in southeast Kirkcudbrightshire.

It started on the A711 to the west of Dalbeattie, on the western side of the bridge over the Urr Water. It then headed north before returning southwards in order to climb into the hills. After reaching Cullinaw the road headed north again before following a now-gone railway line into Castle Douglas. It ended here on the original line of the A75.

The B727 did not last long and by 1932 it had been upgraded to Class I status. It became the A745, which it remains.
