B798 Craigenholt - Ervie
The southern end of the B798

The B798 is a short B-road in the north of the Rhinns of Galloway. The road was originally unclassified and presumably gained its number in the late 1920s.

The road starts at a roundabout on the A718 a couple of miles north of Stranraer and heads northwestwards into Leswalt, the largest place met by the B798. In the centre of the village the road TOTSOs right; ahead is the B7043 towards the west coast.

We continue north along a narrower road than before, although it is pretty straight. The road contours above the Sole Burn to the right; as such there are views in that direction but little can be seen to the left. We continue and cross a saddle to leave the valley behind and then follow a fairly flat route across the fields. After a couple of bends we reach the scattered settlement of Ervie, where the B798 bends to the left and ends at a TOTSO on the B738, with the road ahead heading back south.
