|Route outline (key)|
The B900 is an urban B-road to the north of Edinburgh city centre.
It starts at traffic lights on the A90 Queensferry Road and heads east along the largely residential Craigleith Road. The road continues on to cross the Water of Leith in the Stockbridge area of town to reach a set of traffic lights. The road TOTSOs left here into Hamilton Place.
Presently the road becomes cobbled and then reaches a one-way system. Eastbound traffic bears left into Canon Street to TOTSO right immediately before reaching the B901. The line of the B900 lies to the right - but this turn is prohibited - there is no obvious way to get back to the B900. Westbound traffic simply crosses the B901 at traffic lights to continue into Eyre Place and so reach the end of the one-way system.
Continuing east from the B901 the B900 crosses the old Rodney Street railway tunnel (now a footpath) and runs along Broughton Road. It passes a cemetery before running along Bonnington Road to end at traffic lights on the A901 Great Junction Street in Leith.
