Whitemoss Roundabout is a four-arm roundabout on the A725 to the north east of East Kilbride town centre. The A725 dual carriageway runs through the junction from north to south, while the western arm is the B761. The eastern arm is Calderwood Road, and unclassified distributor route which curves through the towns eastern suburbs. Each arm has two approach lanes for turning traffic, with two departure lanes for the dualled A725, and one for the other two routes. Pedestrians are catered for by four underpasses, meeting at a sunken pedestrian roundabout in the centre of the roads!

The roundabout appears to have been built as part of the original construction of the A749 Kingsway in the 1950s. As built, neither the east nor west routes appear to have been connected, although both are shown on the 1963 map. The A749 was renumbered as the A725 in 1983 upon the completion of the East Kilbride Expressway, connecting to the M74 at Bothwell.
