|Route outline (key)|
The C53a follows Burnbank Street and High Street through the village of Ecclefechan. Perhaps surprisingly, this was never the route taken by the A74, old maps proving that the 'bypass', now followed by the B7076 pre-dates the route numbering in 1922. However, the short section in the middle between Hoddom Road and Langlands Road was once part of the B725 as it zig-zagged through the village.
