|Route outline (key)|
After leaving the A76 behind the road met the B732 and B731 in quick succession before crossing the River Nith. The road continues west via Penpont before following the Shinnel Water upstream for over a mile. After crossing the stream the road went through a hill pass before descending to Kirkland and the B729.
There was a multiplex west along the B729 for a couple of miles to Moniaive, where the B730 regained its number shortly after crossing the Dalwhat Water. The road followed the Castlefairn Water upstream, crossing it at Castlefairn itself before continuing up into the hills. After a few miles the road descended into St John's Town of Dalry, where it ran along Main Street, still descending, before ending on the A713.
The B730 number was short-lived as the became a westward extension of the A702 in the late 1920s. It remains this number.
