The B9041 is a short road running from Burwick on the A961 (former B9040) across the southern tip of South Ronaldsay to Cleat. About two-thirds of the way along, at Cleat, is a right turn to the over-publicised and pricey neolithic attraction called 'Tomb of the Eagles'. Beyond that, the last junction appears to be in the middle of a farmyard, with the road then continuing to a turning space from which two grassy tracks lead off across fields.
Originally the B9041 continued further along the track ahead to Isbister. This house is now ruined and so the road there has been taken over by nature - although it is not known whether the road was ever more than just a track. It seems an odd termination for a classified road, but it presumably made sense once!
