Castlecary Junction is junction 6A on the M80.

It was built in the 1960s as a junction on the A80. It originally allowed six of the eight conceivable turning movements, there being no exit slip road from the NE-bound A80.

Today two movements are possible for all traffic, and a further two for buses only. When the A80 was upgraded to M80, completed 2011, the southbound on-slip was removed, and "bus gates" were added to prevent traffic other than buses heading into or out of Castlecary village from/to the M80.
