Route

Heading north

The B9082 is a short B-road up the east coast of Yell in Shetland.

The road starts on the A968 in Gutcher, a short distance west of the ferry pier for Unst. The road heads north, always within sight of the coast, and skirts the Loch of Garth. Presently the road reaches Stonganess. It skirts Culli Voe, an inlet, before bearing left and morphing into the B9083 for a reason which is not apparent today but is explained below.

History

The B9082 in 1932

For its short length, the B9082 has a surprisingly complicated history.

The original route of the road started on the then-B9080 at the bridge over the Gasa Water north of Sellafirth and curved around heading roughly eastwards on what is now the A968 to Gutcher before heading north to Cullivoe, where it met the B9080 and B9083 at a triple point near the ferry pier for Unst.

However, the A968 was created after World War II. Initially this took over the whole route of the B9080 but it quickly swapped routes with the B9082 when the Unst ferry port was moved from Cullavoe to Gutcher. In other words, the B9082 lost the section west of Gutcher but was instead extended west of Cullivoe to cross the moors back to its original western end at Sellafirth on what was now the A968.

Finally, the section from the bridge to Cullivoe was abandoned, leaving the B9082 and B9083 as two numbers for the same road along Yell's north east coast. The point where the roads run into each other is still the same spot as in 1922, although then the B9080 also arrived there, thus making the change more logical.
