Crianlarich is probably the smallest settlement in Scotland to be afforded Primary Destination status. This is because it is the meeting point of the A82 and A85 as they head north/west from the central belt into the West Highlands. The two roads used to meet in the heart of the village at a simply give-way T junction, but just before Christmas 2014 the Crianlarich bypass opened, taking the A82 around the north west of the village. This saw the A85 extended the short distance north to the new roundabout at the north end of the village, Glenfalloch Road up to the west roundabout being declassified.

Draft orders for the 1-km western bypass of Crianlarich on the A82 were published in September 2009, with work starting in early 2014. The prime reason behind the bypass was to avoid the two tight bends under low railway bridges that the A82 had previously had to negotiate; additionally, it was intended that the roundabout on the A85 would improve flow at the junction point. However, until the A82 is improved along Loch Lomondside, much of the traffic will continue to choose the A85 route from the south and will therefore still need to negotiate at least one of the bridges through the village!
