|Route outline (key)|
The road was unclassified in 1922 but, judging by its low number, it probably became the B9038 the following year. However, it was then renumbered as part of an extension of the B977 in 1935, which also absorbed the B995, and retains this number today. The road has changed little since it was the B9038, with sharp bends making a slightly tortuous route. However, with the works for the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Road now under way, it is undergoing quite a lot of change to accommodate new bridges and junctions.
