|Route outline (key)|
The B8084 is a short B-road in West Lothian. It forms the pre-bypass route of the A706 through Armadale.
The road starts by turning south off the B8028, at a junction that was realigned when the Armadale bypass was built: the B8028 used to turn off the A706. The old A706 immediately north of here is no longer open to traffic. Our route heads south and skirts a wood and golf course before reaching Armadale. It runs through town along North Street and South Street, the boundary between the two being Armadale Cross, now controlled by a set of traffic lights where the B8084 crosses the A89 (former A8).
After running through the suburb of Bathville, where the B708 is met at traffic lights, the road reaches open country just before going over the North Clyde Line, adjacent to Armadale station, which is accessed via a roundabout. Both line and station were only (re)opened in 2011, and there has been a lot of new housing built on the surrounding fields in recent years. The B8084 then continues south before descending into the valley of the River Almond. It ends here, at the Whitdale Roundabout on the A706.
