Entering Dornoch on the A949 (former B867)

Before the A9 was extended to John o Groats, the A88 did that job. As a result, all roads north of Inverness carried 8-zone numbers. The short road into Dornoch from the northbound A88 was the B867. As shown in the map on the right the road originally ended where it met the B868 on the western side of town. It is not known whether it was extended eastwards into town along today's classified road, or whether this happened after the B867 was renumbered.

In 1935, the B867 found itself entirely on the eastern side of the new A9 and so became the in-zone B9167. By 1961 the road had been upgraded to the A949, which it remains.

Rather curiously, while the B86x routes on the Black Isle were busily being renumbered as B916x in the draft proposals for the 1935 renumberings, in Dornoch the idea was to merge the B868 into an extended B867, which would then have been wholly out of zone. Rather sensibly, this idea was discounted, and the roads subsequently became the B9167 and B9168!
