B9079 Orbister - Burra Voe

The A970 (former B9079) at North Collafirth

The original route of the B9079 served the North Roe area of Mainland Shetland.

The road ran from the B9078 at Sandy Lochs near Orbister north to the scattered communities around Burra Voe (the 1922 Road Lists specifically state the end of the road as being Isbister) at the northern end of Shetland's Mainland. However, by 1932 the route had already been renumbered, along with the original B9078, as part of the much-extended A970, and the number re-used on its current route. Much of the A970 has since been improved but the ex-B9079 still remains largely S1.
