|Route outline (key)|
The B925 is a largely rural B-road in south Fife.
It starts at a roundabout on the A92 just to the east of M90 J3. Running beneath this roundabout is the motorway spur which may or may not be the A92(M) but there is no access between this and the B925. The road heads east through Crossgates and quickly reaches the B981 (former A90). This is crossed at a staggered crossroads where the southern junction is controlled by traffic lights.
The road continues east and soon reaches open country. This section of road has clearly been upgraded at one time as it passes through a number of cuttings. Presently a roundabout is reached where the A909 is crossed. The road then climbs steeply and passes to the south of a chemical works. However, the terrain (or is it landscaping?) means that the works is not easily seen. The road then descends through a wood and across fields to Auchtertool.
The B925 runs along Main Street in Auchtertool. After reaching open country once more it undulates for a few miles to enter a wood. It passes to the south of the barely visible Raith Lake, one of very few lakes in Scotland, to enter Kirkcaldy. It passes Beveridge Park to reach a roundabout. To the right is the B9157; the other two directions are numbered A910.
There is a short multiplex north along the A910 to a mini-roundabout where that road turns off and the B925 continues ahead. It goes under the Fife Circle Line before turning left at a roundabout. The road then continues north along Victoria Road, which is dual-carriageway for a short distance, into the suburb of Pathhead. It ends here at a T-junction on the A921.
The B925 was originally a very short route indeed, simply being Nicol Street in Kirkcaldy, connecting the then-A907 to the then-A92. However, sometime before 1932 the A907 route was moved southwards, and then around 1935 the B925 was extended westwards along the former A907 to the A909.
The original B925 lasted at least until the 1970s but has now been renumbered as part of the A910. Around the same time the B925 has taken another chunk of the old A907 in both directions. It has been extended west as far as Crossgates, where it now terminates on the A92 / M90 junction, and extended east through Kirkcaldy.
