The B759 is a semi-urban B-road mostly in north Lanarkshire.
It starts on the A727 opposite Busby station and heads northeastwards through small parts of Busby village before heading across the fields along Carmunnock Road. Here it crosses a river and the maintenance of the road changes from East Renfrewshire Council to Glasgow Council, before crossing a roundabout on the B766 en route, before reaching Carmunnock itself; although the village is administered by Glasgow Council it is surrounded by open country and parts do look quite rural. The road climbs through the village and TOTSOs left by an old fingerpost.
The road enters open country once again and heads northeast past the wooded Cathkin Braes and the large Cathkin Wind Turbine, which can be seen from miles around. Eventually the road turns right to head east and soon after houses are visible through the trees and the road then meets the A749 (former B744). Originally there was a short multiplex to the right. However, in more recent years the A749 has been dualled and so B759 traffic is forced to turn left. The multiplex continues as traffic does a U-turn at the next roundabout and only then is allowed to bear left to regain the B759 number. All other movements are dealt with more simply at this junction.
The B759 continues northeastwards along Greenlees Road becomes urban once again, passing a modern housing estate and golf course. The road turns left at a roundabout and continues north along residential roads to cross a railway line by Kirkhill station. The road descends into Cambuslang and goes over another railway line just before ending at traffic lights on the A724 Main Street.
