Route outline (key)
A937 Lawrencekirk - Montrose

The A937 is a relatively short A-road in east Scotland.

The road starts at the north end of the A90 Laurencekirk bypass and heads south through the town. This section of road was originally the A94 before the bypass was built (and indeed A94 was the original number of the bypass).

At the south end of town, a bend to the left marks the original start of the A937 and the road heads south to meet the bypass again, to cross the dual-carriageway A90 at grade. The planners must have thought that Laurencekirk does not produce enough traffic to warrant building GSJs, as the junction at the north end of the A937 is also only marked by a gap in the A90's central reservation.

North Craigo

Leaving the A90 behind, the A937 continues in a vaguely southerly direction although heads slightly westwards to avoid the hills to the east. After Marykirk, it crosses the River North Esk (which marks the county boundary) and goes under the railway line, before turning sharply left to run parallel to the railway.

A few miles later, the A937 bypasses Hillside (as it always has done) before going under the railway line again to end on the A92 to the north of Montrose.
