Route outline (key)
B99 Straid - Glynn
Towards Glenoe

The B99 is a cross-country road in east County Antrim. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s.

The road starts to the east of Straid at a TOTSO on the B58 and bears round to the left along Watch Hill Road, quickly ending up in a northerly direction. It crosses the fields to reach a badly signed TOTSO, where it turns right; ahead is the B100.

We now descend Waterfall Road, following a similar route to the tiny Glenoe Water before reaching the village of the same name, which we bypass to the west. A road turns off to the right into Glenoe, after which we pass the entrance to the car park to the eponymous waterfall. On the northern side of the village the B149 comes in from the right.

After a straight, flat section the road climbs up in the hills then contours, with the River Glynn beneath us to the left. Larne Lough can occasionally be glimpsed through gaps in the trees. The road descends to end on the A2 only a short distance from the lough. Glynn lies to the left.
