The road begins in the shadow of a railway viaduct at a roundabout junction with the A823. It heads west along Nethertown Broad Street then south along Forth Street to leave town by going over the freight-only railway line to Alloa. Now called Limekilns Road it climbs across the fields then continues on to terminate at an angled T-junction with the A985 near Broomhall.
