The old B8008 at Inchmore near Kirkhill

The original B8008 is the former number of the B9164 through Kirkhill near Beauly, a road which has seen little change, apart from new houses springing up in the village since it was renumbered in 1935. The eastern end is now largely two-way, which it may not have been in the past, but the western end remains a wide single-track road with passing places.

This route was not allocated a number in 1922, but must have been added the following year, judging by its low number. Prior to the A9 extending to John o Groats in 1935, everything to the north of Inverness was in the 8 zone. When the A9 headed north, along what is now the A862, this road was renumbered as the B9164 to stop it being out of zone. Curiously, when the A9 was rerouted once more, pushing Kirkhill back into the 8 zone, the number was not changed back!
