|Route outline (key)|
The B9065 is possibly the shortest B-road in Orkney, running from the Rousay Ferry Pier to the B9064 at Trumland: barely a third of a mile long. Along the way it manages to pass the ferry waiting area, with a small museum of sorts, and the island's only (?) pub, which sits just above the slipway.
Whilst in 1922 when originally classified, the B9065 seems to have followed more-or-less the course it does today (it seems to have joined the B9064 slightly further west), in the 1950s it is mapped as forming a loop from the B9064, past the piers. This included the steep climb back up from Brinian House, which may be why this section was declassified once more.
