Typical view on the B832

The B832 forms part of the northern access to Helensburgh from the A82 along Loch Lomond. The southern end of the original B832 (along with the whole of the B831) was upgraded to be the A818 on 7 January 2005 as it was more heavily used than the other signed route via the A814 and Dumbarton Town Centre. However, just over a mile and a half of the route survives.

Starting on the A82, the junction is a simple give way T-junction, signed Helensburgh B832 (A818). The road starts off promisingly, running between white metal-railing fences, but as we reach the first bend the road narrows and the surface deteriorates, partly due to the spread of mud from the farm. The road now snakes through trees, with a number of houses hidden behind the foliage, and starts climbing. Even the bits of road that look straight on the map seem to meander along between the hedges, and soon the trees thin out as we reach the upper fields of rough grazing.

Still climbing, the road does now straighten out, and trees return in areas of woodland on either side of the road. Then, the summit is crossed and we start the descent, albeit not for long. Just past the summit the warning sign for the approaching mini roundabout appears, and as we drop down the road kinks slightly to the left to reveal the junction ahead. To the left, the A818 heads back along the former B831 to the A82; ahead it continues along what was originally the B832 into Helensburgh, and to the right the minor road up Glen Fruin runs through the valley floor below the new A817 high above.
