B737 Link in Stranraer

The B737 is an urban B-road in Stranraer, Wigtownshire.

The junction of Leswalt High Road and High Park Avenue

The route starts at a crossroads as the westward continuation of the A75 to the east of Stranraer town centre. The A75 terminates here, and the cross route is the A77, but priority is given to the A75-B737 London Road. The route heads west along London Road, crossing a mini roundabout for a supermarket in front of the parish church, and soon runs into Hanover Street. At the junction with St John Street, the B737 becomes one-way westbound, eastbound traffic having to use unclassified one-way streets to the north. Hanover Street winds between shops, becoming Bridge Street (the small burn is almost entirely underground through the town). The one-way section then ends at a mini-roundabout where the A718 is crossed. This marks the original eastern end of the B737, and even now there is no eastbound route of the B737 comparable with the westbound one-way roads.

After crossing the A718 the B737 climbs to the west along Sun Street, passing some large old detached properties and modern blocks of flats before levelling out. A narrow section between old terraced houses follows, before the route continues along Leswalt High Road. A church with a prominent tower stands on the right, after which there are some views out across the cemetery to Loch Ryan, with the ferry port of Cairnryan notable on the eastern shore. Bungalow development then predominates as the route gently winds down to end at a T-junction back on the A718 towards the western end of the town.


As originally depicted on the MOT map, the B737 only ran to the west of the A718. However, by 1930 it had been extended eastwards to its current extent. Apart from the subsequent introduction of one-way streets, the route has hardly changed since.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Loop West of Stranraer
