Route outline (key)
B9129 Kingskettle - Ladybank

The B9129 is a link road which sort of cuts the corner between the A914 near Kingskettle and the A92 by Ladybank. It isn't exactly a short cut, due to the speed limits and junctions passing through the villages, but for those communities it is an important road.

Approaching Kingskettle

Starting on the A914 at a simple T-junction south east of Kingskettle, the road heads north west into the village, where it follows Main Street as it deviates around the church yard. The route then curves to the right onto Ladybank Road and continues northwards, soon leaving the village behind as the road heads out across the fields and across the River Eden. The road then becomes Kettle Road as it enters Ladybank, just before kinking to the left to pass under the railway, and onto Commercial Crescent. A TOTSO is quickly reached, with the B938 terminating from the west; indeed this route, which was classified in 1922, always finished hereabouts, even before the B9129 came into being. The route turns right onto Commercial Road before curving left onto Victoria Street past the station and head through what may be an old market place, before the road narrows as it runs alongside the railway.

Victoria Street becomes Victoria Road and then the route then forks left onto Melville Road as it works its way through the village, with older detached house proliferating. Melville Road cuts diagonally across the grid pattern of streets before kinking right onto Cupar Road, a long straight heading north out of town. The route then comes to an end at a T junction on the A92 at Cairnfield, a short distance further on.


The route was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932. However, as late as the 1948 edition of the OS Six Inch Sheet, it appears that the B9129 had a useless multiplex with the B938 for a few yards, with the B938 still reaching the station. Subsequent maps all show the B938 terminating at the western junction.
