The A943 (former B978) in Stonehaven

The B978 number was originally allocated to the Slug Road, running between Stonehaven and Banchory. However, by 1926, the route had been upgraded to the A957, which remains the case today. The route remains largely unchanged except for the northern section of the road, which originally ended on the A943 at Knappach Toll. The A957 was rerouted with the opening of the new Durris Bridge in 1976, which allowed traffic to bypass Banchory, thus downgrading the A943 and part of the former B978, both of which are now unclassified.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Stonehaven - Junction with A943 near Banchory
