Route outline (key)
B920 Lochgelly - Scotlandwell
Crossing the River Leven

The B920 is a short B-road in central Fife.

The route starts at a mini-roundabout in Lochgelly on the B981 (former A910) and heads north along Station Road which runs past a varied selection of often large detached and semi-detached houses. The road then starts to dip down, and sweeps round a right hand bend to go under the Fife Circle Line by the station. On the far side the road is more rural - but still has to pass a large industrial estate (hidden behind trees) and a school before leaving the town behind. It is not open fields, however, with scattered development and a band of trees to pass through, before the settlement of Glencraig is reached. This old mining village is now really just the southern edge of Lochore, with the mini roundabout at the entrance to the Lochore Country Park being all that separates the two.

The route continues to head north on Main Street curving through Crosshill before reaching Lochore proper. Lochleven Road carries the B920 past the shops and across a busy skewed crossroads at the northern end of the centre, after which the route becomes more suburban as it continues on through the eastern edge of Ballingry. The road then curves round to the right to avoid the steep slopes of Navitie Hill, quickly leaving the town behind. Just after reaching open country the B9097 comes in from the right after which the B920 is the dominant number in a short multiplex through a shallow gap in the hills. After the B9097 turns off left the B920 bends to the right as it drops down onto the flat land of the valley of the River Leven. It then TOTSOs left onto a road called The Causeway to cross the dead-straight new cut of the River Leven at New Gullet Bridge. A kink right at Levenmouth leads to a second long straight which runs towards the hills seen in the distance. At the end, it reaches the foot of the hills at Scotlandwell and ends at a TOTSO on the A911 in the middle of the village.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Lochgelly - Scotlandwell
