B795 Lauriston - Gerranton
Game Park Plantation

The B795 is a rural B-road in south Kirkcudbrightshire. The road was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932.

The road starts on the A762 in Lauriston and heads east, climbing across the fields. To begin with the road has a few straight sections interspersed with sharp bends but the road becomes more winding as it descends. We go through Glenlochar then cross a narrow bridge over the wide River Dee. The hydro-electric barrage that has dammed the river to form Loch Ken is just to the left.

Back on dry land there's a short straight section into Townhead of Greenlaw, where we meet the A713 and cross it at a staggered crossroads. Continuing east the road follows a winding route to try and keep as flat as possible, although naturally some gradients are unavoidable. After reaching a summit the road descends gently to its end at a T-junction on the A75 to the north of Castle Douglas.
