The B901 is a short urban B-road heading north from Edinburgh city centre.
It starts on the edge of the New Town at the Picardy Place roundabout on the A900. The road heads west along Broughton Street past the Catholic Cathedral and bears to the right at traffic light to continue along Broughton Street.
The road heads north. It crosses a corner of the New Town before meeting the B900 at traffic lights. On the far side it crosses the Water of Leith at Canonmills Bridge before passing the Royal Botanic Garden (which is behind the houses on the left and so invisible from the road). The road continues along Inverleith Row to end at traffic lights on the A902 Ferry Road.
