Lupins near Kirkcaldy

The A910 is a short A-road in Kirkcaldy, which only retains a couple of hundred metres of its original route.

The road starts at a traffic light controlled junction on Kirkcaldy Esplanade as Nicol Street and heads west, through a signalised crossroads at the end of the High Street, then under the railway to a roundabout where it turns right onto Abbotshall Road. After a short multiplex with the B925, the two split at a mini-roundabout, the A910 turning left onto Forth Avenue. This quickly leads to another roundabout near Kirkcaldy station, where the route turns left onto Oriel Road, heading west once more. The road quickly leaves the urban area behind and runs along a modern alignment, curving gently between tall trees around the edge of Raith Park. In fact, there is a large housing estate to the left, which can be glimpsed here and there, and the town is not far away to the right either, at the top of a steep slope.

Oriel Road becomes Wester Bogie Road which curves round to the north, the housing now more obvious on the right, with fields to the left. At the Chapel Roundabout, the A910 meets the B981 and becomes dual carriageway as the two routes multiplex up the hill, through another roundabout to meet the A92 East Fife Regional Road at Chapel Junction. The northern end of this short multiplex is the only surviving part of the original line of the A910, which continued north.


The road used to start on the A907 (now B925) in Kirkcaldy and leave town along Bennochy Road and Hendry Road. It then turned west onto Chapel Level, now the B981, to the Chapel Roundabout, where it picked up what is now Dean Park Road to reach Chapel Junction. From here it ran along the current line of the B981 through Cluny, Cardenden, Auchterderren and Lochgelly to meet the A90 (now A909) to the north of Cowdenbeath. After the opening of the M90, the A910 was extended along the former A90 route from Cowdenbeath as far as the A907 at Crossgates.

With the upgrading of the A92 and downgrading of the A907, the A910 was shortened, reduced to being a short route in Kirkcaldy. At some point it was also re-routed around the town and linked to the seafront, although while it is not clear if this happened before or after the A92 opened, both happened between 1988 and 1993. Its easternmost section, Nicol Street, was the original B925 before that road was extended westwards.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Cowdenbeath - Kirkcaldy
