Route outline (key)
B9062 Sandybank - Odie

The B9062 is a short B-road in the north of the Orkney island of Stronsay.

Meeting the airport road

The route starts at Sandybank, where the B9060 TOTSOs to reach the island capital of Whitehall and the ferry pier, while the B9062 continues north, signposted to the airfield. The majority of the route is dead-straight, as it runs along the ridge down the centre of the island, undulating a little before it climbs to the top of John's Hill, the highest point in the area. The road to the airfield turns off to the right but the B9062 continues ahead. Its original 1922 northern end was at the next bend (the first actual bend on the road's route). In more recent years, however, it has been extended to the following bend. Both these termini are in the middle of nowhere and the extension doesn't pass any further properties, so it is not clear why the road was extended. The next building is a short distance further on again.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: St John's Hill - Sandybank
