Calrossie Wood

Prior to the A9 extending to John O Groats in 1935, everything to the north was in the 8 zone. As such, the road along the Tarbat Peninsula was the B865.

Starting on the A88 (present A9, although that road has been rerouted slightly to the west at this point) to the southeast of Tain, the B865 headed east through Calrossie Wood and soon crossed the railway line by Fearn station. A few zigzags took the road through Hill of Fearn into Fearn itself, from where the B866 continued ahead making a beeline for the coast.

The B865 continued northeastwards along the peninsula, presently reaching Portmahomack. It then followed Main Street through the village to reach the sea before running along the coast to the harbour, where the road ended.

In 1935, numerous B roads were subtly adjusted from B8xx to B91xx, so the B865 (which found itself entirely on the eastern side of the new A9) became the B9165, which it remains.
