The B914 is a rural B-road in west Fife.

The route begins in Saline as a straight-line eastbound continuation of the B913, which TOTSOs to the south at this point. It follows a long straight as it climbs steadily through the small valley which is home to the former mining village of Steelend, almost part of Saline today. A couple of sweeping bends then lift the route up over the 200m contour before it straightens out for a long run across the hillside, with scattered farms set back amongst the fields down long driveways. The only junction of any note on the route is [[Redcraigs Toll, where the A823 crosses at a crossroads. Following a change in the early 2000s, the B914 now has priority through the junction, which gives access to the Knockhill Racing circuit a short distance to the north.

The B914 continues eastwards, running below the steep escarpment of the Roscobie Hills and past an old quarry site to reach a TOTSO with the B915. This junction has also been altered from its original alignment, but it can still be difficult to turn right when heading west on the B914. The final stretch of the B914 continues eastwards through the southern fringe of the large Blairadam forest, which hides yet another former open cast mine, St Ninians, to the south. It then terminates end on with the A909 at junction 4 of the M90 just before entering Kelty. Originally it continued on through the village of Kelty on Cocklaw Street and Station Road to end on the A90 (present B996) but following the construction of the M90 and the downgrading of the former A90 route, this section is now designated as part of the A909.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Saline - Kelty
