Milestone by the former B974 (later A974, now B9119) near Drumlasie
The original route of the B974, as classified in 1922, ran in central Aberdeenshire. Starting on the A97 at Mill of Logie, near Ordie, the road followed a winding but not particularly hilly route to the east. After running through villages such as Tairland and Echt the road ended on the A944 at West Kingsford, near Westhill.
By 1928 this route had already been upgraded to become the A974, but by the 1970s it had reverted to Class II status, this time as the B9119, the B974 number having been reused by 1932.
