B9059 Balfour - Sandgarth
Howe

The B9059 follows Shapinsay's south coast.

The road starts by the harbour in Balfour and heads north past the ferry pier before turning eastwards. Just over half a mile later, after leaving town, the B9058 turns off to serve the north of the island. Originally it was the B9058 that served Balfour and the B9059 started here; it is not known when the two numbers were swapped. Maps show that the B9059 becomes single-track at this point but in reality there is no visible change.

The road is largely flat and more-or-less straight for a couple of miles until it bends sharply to the right at Purtaquoy. This is the original 1922 eastern end of the road but it now continues for a short distance south until it reaches a farmyard and apparently turns into a farm track.
