|Route outline (key)|
The A997 was a short link road to the north of Stirling with a surprisingly complicated numbering history.
The road started at the A9/A91 junction in Causewayhead and headed north along Logie Road to reach Hillfoots Road. It then turned right along Hillfoots Road, following it back to end on the A91. The western section of Hillfoots Road, back to the A9 Airthrey Road, is also marked as a Class I road on maps showing the A997 and is therefore likely to be a spur or the mainline of the same road.
Hillfoots Road was the original western end of the A91 whilst Logie Road was numbered B907. This situation lasted until the 1950s at the latest (although the B907 soon lost its number, presumably becoming part of the A91) when the A91 was rerouted onto a flatter route further east and the road vacated became the A997.
The road appears to have been declassified by the 1970s but was soon upgraded again, becoming the B998, which it remains. The western section of Hillfoots Road, however, remains unclassified.
