This article is about the former A951 in Peterhead.

The A951 number is simply, and unhelpfully listed in the 1922 Road Lists as being in Peterhead. It was therefore presumed, on the balance of probability to have been used previously for King Street in Peterhead. However, the document detailing the demise of the A951 in 1935 identifies the route as part of Kirk Street, although this is very hard to understand as the streets to either side of Kirk Street are undeniably part of the A950, so why wasn't Kirk Street? The number became redundant in 1935 when the A952 was extended south along the former A949, and the section of Kirk Street which had been the A951 apparently became a spur of the A952.

Unfortunately so far no map definitively showing the A951 has been identified. Furthermore, careful examination of old maps suggests that the A949 turned east along Manse Street, leaving a short gap or multiplex with the A950 before it continued along King Street, with the short section of connecting road (now the western flank of the roundabout) remaining unclassified into the 1950s. The western part of Kirk Street is explicitly numbered as being the A950 on the 1950 OS Six Inch Map, as is Marischal Street to the east, and the only logical route between these two points is along the eastern part of Kirk Street, leaving no room for a spur of the A952 anywhere.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Link at Peterhead
An official document from 16-5-35 details the following changes: Renumbered as A952 (Kirk Street spur)
