B785 Largs - Lochwinnoch
This article is about the original B785 to the east of the Ayrshire town of Largs.
For the current B785 further south, to the east of Kilwinning, see B785

The now-unclassified former B785 near Camphill Reservoir

The B785 was a medium-length B-road in southern Scotland.

It started on the A78 to the south of Largs town centre, only a stone's throw from the sea. The road headed east, zigzagging up into the hills before continuing across the moors. There are now two reservoirs here and the old line of the B785 is partially lost under the water.

After passing the B784 the road reached Kilbirnie, where it met the B783 (now B780). The road then headed more northerly to Lochwinnoch and the B786 before turning eastwards once more past Barr Loch to end soon afterwards on the A737.

The road was obviously important from the beginning as it was upgraded to Class I status later in the 1920s. It became the A760, which it remains.
