Route

The B9081 is a B-road in the south of the Shetland island of Yell forming a loop off the A968.

Houlland

The road starts on the A968 at Bay of Ulsta, just to the north of the ferry terminal connecting Yell with Mainland. To begin with the road heads northeast and climbs onto the moors, before heading east and dropping down to the island's south coast. The road runs above the sea before passing to the north of the Loch of Littlester to enter Burravoe, where the road bends sharply left by the school.

The road now heads north. It remains a short distance inland, out of sight of the coast as far as the next inlet before climbing so that the views become more widespread. Although the road stays to the east of the hills it does get quite high. After going past the transmitter station it descends to Mid Yell, where it TOTSOs left and ends a short distance further on back on the A968.

History

The original route of the B9081

The original route of the B9081 started on the pier at Ulsta and then went via West Sandwick instead of Burravoe along the route now numbered A968. The current B9081 is therefore on part of the original route of the B9080. However, the reason behind all of this is that the A968 was originally extended over the B9080 route, before later swapping with the more direct B9081!
