A949 Toll of Birness - Peterhead
This article is about the original A949, in Aberdeenshire heading south from Peterhead.
For the current A949, formerly A9 and B9167 in Sutherland, see A949
.


The former A949 (now A90) at Longhaven

The A949 originally ran from the A92 at Toll of Birness northeastwards to the coast near Boddam, then north to Peterhead, where it ended on the A950 in the centre of town. The entire road became part of an extended A952 in 1935.

Later, when the A90 was extended from Aberdeen to Fraserburgh, it was diverted via Peterhead rather than taking the more direct route the A92 had done and so the ex-A949 is now mostly part of the A90, although the road has been improved in more recent years. Peterhead is bypassed, however, and so the northern end of the road is now part of the A982.
