Logie Kirk

Causewayhead sits below Abbey Craig at the head of the mile-long Causeway across the Carse of Stirling. It is a historic meeting place, both for roads and people, and in times gone by this northern part of the county of Stirling was a regular haunt of cattle rustlers and other people of dubious standards, as they could quickly escape across the county boundary to either Perthshire or Clackmannan which at the time came under different jurisdiction and so offered an element of sanctuary!

Today the junction is a rather minor elongated roundabout on the A9, where the A907 heads east to Alloa and beyond, while the B998 climbs the hill past the Wallace Monument to meet the A91 at Logie Kirk. However, before the M9 was opened in the early 1970s this was a significant junction where the north road (the A9) met both the A91 and A907 as they headed East across Clackmannan to Fife, which apart from the Kincardine Bridge were the first road routes into the county.

While the A9 and A907 have always followed the same routes from this junction, the road heading north east has had 4 different numbers. It started life as the B907, then became the A91, before becoming an arm of the A997, and finally it is now the B998.
