In Moniaive the A702 bends to the left to cross the stream before narrowing for a short distance. As it widens the original priorities can be seen as the A702 left and the B729 continues ahead. It heads west out of town along a tributary valley before climbing for a few miles and eventually entering a wood, which takes the road to its summit. The road then narrows and begins to descend.

The road heads west across open moorland for a couple of miles. It crosses a few streams but does not follow any until it passes through another forest and skirts a small reservoir. It then reaches a stream valley and follows this downstream, crossing the stream and the Southern Upland Way before crossing the Water of Ken to enter another forest. The road widens and meets the B7000 before running along the shore of Kendoon Loch, another reservoir. As the B729 continues the loch narrows into a river, the Water of Deugh, which is followed for the remainder of the road. After a couple of miles the road reaches a T-junction opposite a war memorial. This is the original end of the road on the A713. However, that road has been straightened leaving this loop behind; the B729 therefore splits and runs in both directions to end on the current route of the A713.
