|Route outline (key)|
The B767 is a semi-urban B-road running south of the Glasgow urban area.
It starts to the south of Cathcart, at traffic lights where the westbound B762 TOTSOs right. The B767 heads south along Clarkston Road, which was originally the A727. This road is largely residential and becomes more suburban the further it goes. The road continues south through Muirend before entering into East Renfrewshire's Netherlee area. As we continue further down and enter Clarkston the Clarkston Road becomes Stamperland Crescent and we skirt a golf course before going over a railway line to reach an important but notoriously confusing roundabout on the present A727.
There is a short multiplex east along the A727 past Clarkston station and the town centre before the B767 regains its number as the A727 TOTSOs at Sheddens roundabout. This, incidentally, is the road's original northern end. It heads south along Eaglesham Road, already advertising its destination.
After running through south Clarkston the road passes Williamwood High School before it enters open country. The next village is Waterfoot, where the road runs adjacent to the White Cart Water for a short distance. Waterfoot spreads for some distance along the road so it is not wholly urban or rural until just before it crosses a roundabout on the A726. The road then climbs into Eaglesham. It runs along Gilmour Street through town before ending at a signalised crossroads on the B764. From here you can take the aforementioned B764 to Jackton or across the Eaglesham Moor towards Kilmarnock. The road ahead is signposted to Strathaven – but this follows a criss-cross S1 route around the hills so is not recommended to drivers who do not know the area. There are also roads leading to East Kilbride, Auldhouse, Chapelton and Darvel from this area.
