Route outline (key)
B9073 Wick - Scalloway
Heading west

The B9073 is a short link road on Shetland Mainland, connecting two branches of the A970 to the west of Lerwick.

The road starts at Wick on the ex-A968 within view of the east coast and heads west along a winding route of good S2 standard: the road has obviously been improved from its original course. The road ends at a T-junction on the ex-A969 to the east of Scalloway.

Apart from any upgrades the road is unchanged from its 1922 route. It has ended on the A970 at both ends since that road was significantly extended after World War II.
