|Route outline (key)|
The C81 is part of the former route of first the A907, then the A823 through Dunfermline's town centre. It starts at the roundabout where these two routes meet, and heads west along East Port, although eastbound traffic has to turn north before the roundabout and meet the A907 at a signalised junction. This is a fairly recent change, and seems illogical. East Port runs west into the town centre, meeting the pedestrianised High Street. Here, the C81 turns south onto New Row, the former line of the A823, and then turns east again, the rest of New Row being a cul-de-sac. From Priory Lane, the C81 turns left onto Moodie Street to reach the B9156.
