|Route outline (key)|
The A908 is the only A road to lie entirely within Clackmannanshire, once Scotland's smallest county, now its smallest unitary authority.
Alloa - Tillicoultry
The road begins at the Whins roundabout with the A907 in Alloa centre, and almost immediately passes below a railway bridge, where the road surface has been lowered to increase headroom. The roundabout with the B909, where traffic joins from the Kincardine direction, involves a TOTSO, and the road heads into Sauchie, where there is a junction with a spur of the B908 Alloa–Alva road. Confusingly, the A908 and B908 both link Alloa and Sauchie by different routes.
The next junction is a painted roundabout with the B9140 at Fishcross, whose grim housing-scheme architecture is relieved by the sudden dramatic appearance of the rampart of the Ochils. The route next passes through Devon Village (a strange name as it is a good way from the River Devon, and its handful of houses hardly classes as a village), and the very obviously named Benview. Then there is a sweeping descent to Devonside, a suburb of Tillicoultry. Passing by Sterling Mills warehouse, which is Tilly's main claim to fame, the A908 ends at a painted roundabout with the A91 next to Tillcoultry bus stance.
