The B9044 is a short road serving Grimness at the northern end of South Ronaldsay.
The road starts on the A961 (former B9040) by the former landing stage for the ferry to Burray, which was withdrawn with the completion of the road across the Churchill Barriers. This northern end of the road seems to have been diverted slightly to the east following the inauguration of the A961.
The B9044 heads southeastwards along a straight road across Grimness. Its original terminus appeared to be in the middle of nowhere but it has since been extended slightly and ends at the point where it bends to the right. This unclassified road, which did not exist in 1922, returns to the A961 at Eastdam and seems to be of the same quality as the classified B9044.
