|Route outline (key)|
The B9080 was a long B-road on Yell in Shetland.
The road started on the B9081 (now A968) at Bay of Ulsta and headed east to Burravoe then north to Camb, where the B9081 was met again. Our road then continued north to see off the B9082 at the northern end of Basta Voe before heading northeast to Cullivoe, where it ended at a triple-point of B9080/B9082/B9083. The ferry to Unst left from the nearby pier.
After World War II the road was upgraded to become part of the new A968 in north Shetland. The northern section of the road soon swapped with the B9082; the same happened with the B9081 in the south later on. In the intervening years the former has been abandoned as highway altogether.
