B759 Busby - Cambuslang
Cathkin Road, Carmmunnock

The B759 is a semi-urban B-road in north Lanarkshire.

It starts on the A727 opposite Busby station and heads northeastwards across the fields along Carmunnock Road, crossing a roundabout on the B766 en route, before reaching Carmunnock itself. Administratively this village is a suburb of Glasgow but 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 east past the wooded Cathkin Braes. Eventually 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 and passes a golf course before becoming urban once again. 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.
