Route

Road to North Nesting

The B9075 is a cross-country B-road on Shetland Mainland.

The road starts on the A971 at Weisdale, at the head of Weisdale Voe; the A971 has to detour this far north to cross the stream and the B9075 continues northwards along the valley. It therefore climbs gently as it heads north before bending sharply right at Setter. The road then heads east, crosses the valley and climbs onto the moor to pass between two hills and then descend again to Sand Water. We pass to the north of the loch before reaching a T-junction on the A970.

There is then a multiplex south for well over a mile before the B9075 regains its number by heading east once more. It quickly skirts the northern end of Cat Firth, another inlet of the sea, before heading northeast across the fields to reach the east coast. This is followed for a couple of miles to Brettabister, where the road bends sharply left, running round the war memorial, to head inland. The road crosses a high ridge before descending to the settlement of Dury and Dury Voe, another inlet.

For the remainder of its route the B9075 contours round a hill above Dury Voe. Eventually the road descends into a valley at the head of the inlet, here called Laxo Voe. The stream is crossed and the road climbs to end at a T-junction on the B9071 Laxo bypass.

History

When the B9075 was first classified in 1922 it only ran through Weisdale, connecting the A970 and A971. The route had been extended to Laxo by 1932.
