B9111 Link in Stirling
This article is about the former B9111 in Stirling.
For the current B9111 at Auldearn in Nairnshire, see B9111

The B9111 was a short link road in the centre of Stirling. It was originally unclassified, and is not shown on the 1951 edition of the OS Six Inch Map, and also shown as an unclassified route on the 1:25,000 sheet from 1950. However, it is first marked as an un-numbered B road on the 1956 1:25,000 map, shown again on the 1957 One Inch, and numbered on the 1958 1:10,000 sheet. It seems unlikely, but not impossible, that it was missed out from the earlier maps.

Originally the A9 ran straight through the middle of Stirling along Barnton Street, Port Street and St Ninian's Road. The A811 (Dumbarton Road) and A905 (Upper Craigs) terminated at a crossroads at the southern end of the main shopping areas. In the north east quadrant of this crossroads lies the railway station and what was a small industrial area amongst the goods yard; the B9111 ran through this. Starting on the A905 just west of the railway line, the B9111 ran along Goosecroft Road, cutting the corner from the A905 to the station. However, before getting there it bore left to skirt the goods yard and followed Thistle Street to end on the A9 Murray Place.

Following construction of the present route of the A9 the B9111 was taken over as part of a one-way loop on the A811. Thistle Street was subsequently destroyed by the construction of the Thistles Shopping Centre, and so the ex-B9111 has more recently been renumbered as part of a rerouted B8052.

The 1971 Quarter Inch map showing the B9111 passing along Burghmuir Road, which is now the A9

To add to the complexities of this short routes history, the OS Quarter Inch sheet from 1971 marks the then new dual carriageway Burghmuir Road (now the A9) as a B road. The OS 1:2500 sheet from 1970/71 goes further and numbers the route as the B911, which must surely be a misprint for the B9111? This situation was very short lived, as the OS One Inch map, also from 1971 shows Burghmuir Road as the A9, with the B8052 following the old A9 route.
