|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at traffic lights on the A9 on the left bank of the River Forth, to the north of Stirling city centre. It heads north along Cornton Road, running alongside the river for a short distance before bearing right to go through the suburb of Cornton. The sweeping bend followed here is a modern realignment; the road formerley followed a wiggly line along the edge of the housing, albeit before the housing was built.
After passing Cornton Vale prison the road goes over the Stirling to Perth railway line at a level crossing to reach the edge of Bridge of Allan. It continues along Cornton Road into town. The road's original route was then to TOTSO left along Allanvale Road and Union Street, which reaches the A9 at a mini-roundabout. Some maps still show the road as following this route. However, because of the TOTSO and the fact that Union Street is one-way into town, other maps show the road continuing ahead from Cornton Road into the two-way Fountain Road, to end at a T-junction on the A9.
