Route

The B975 climbs Castle Road

The B975 is a very short road in Dufftown.

It starts on the B9014 on the banks of the Fiddich, at the Bridge of Poolinch, opposite a distillery, and snakes up the hill heading northwest. The viaduct of the Keith & Dufftown preserved railway sits down to the right, but the road slowly turns around the wooded hill, before a short straight takes it past the Glenfiddich Distillery and so on to a junction with the A941.

The primary users of this road appear to be vehicles going from one distillery to another, and with so many in the town this means a lot of traffic! It also allows lorries to bypass the town centre when travelling along the A941 – not that the B975 is a particularly high-quality alternative.

History

The B975 number is a clear re-use of one formerly employed in Aberdeenshire, but the precise date when this road gained the number is unclear. Maps do not explicitly mark the road as Class II until the 1950s, and even then show it without a number, but it is probable that the number was first applied at some point in the 1930s.
