B875 Reiss - John o' Groats

The junction between the former B875 and B876

The original incarnation of the B875 had a short but chequered life. It originally started on the A88 in Reiss, just north of Wick, and ran northward to terminate at John o' Groats.

However, along with many of the original B roads around the northern coasts of Scotland, it was soon renumbered and by the 1930s it was the A882 as far as the junction with the former B876, which was also renumbered as part of the A882, leaving only a short stub at the northern end retaining the B875 number.

In 1935, the whole of the original B875 was renumbered as an extension of the A9, which was extended from Inverness all the way to John o' Groats. This helps to explain the current TOTSO at Reiss.

In 1997, following the rerouting of the A9 to Thurso and Scrabster, the route changed number again, becoming the northern section of the A99, meaning that the whole of the ex-B875 now has this number.
