B9079 Eela Water - Ollaberry

Ollaberry

The B9079 is a short secondary road on Mainland Shetland. It was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932. The 1932 Ten-Mile map suggests the road was then only half its present length but there is no reason why it would not have served Ollaberry from the outset.

The road starts on the shore of Eela Water on the Isbister branch of the A970 and climbs eastwards past the water works. We continue across the moor and pass Ollaberry Shop before descending towards the coast. After passing a few isolated buildings (including the public hall and school) we reach Ollaberry proper. We run above the Bay of Ollaberry and pass a left turn leading back to the A970. The road ends in the village centre at a road junction by the Post Office. The other roads here are unclassified but do not leave the village.
