The B9054 is a short road in Kirkwall town centre. The road was originally unclassified and owing to its short length it is not known exactly when it gained its number. It is shown on maps from the late 1940s.
The road's northern end is unclear. Its traditional start point is where the A960 turned from Harbour Street into Bridge Street but the latter road is now semi-pedestrianised so some maps show the B9054 as extending along Harbour Street to the Kiln Corner Roundabout. Either way, it heads east along Shore Street, before turning right at the Shore Street roundabout down St Catherine's Place. There's another sharp right briefly along East Road, with the road then weaving around the historic back streets to the east of the town centre. It turns left into Queen Street, which becomes King Street and then School Place to rejoin the A960 once more.
