Dunblane North Junction lies, as its name suggests, to the north of Dunblane, and connects the A9 Dunblane Bypass to the B8033. The junction is a folded Diamond Interchange, with sliproads heading east from the B road to meet the A9 dual carriageway below. The southbound A9 slips use part of the former alignment out of Dunblane, prior to the construction of the bypass, and between them and the eastern arm of the A9 there is a section of abandoned dual carriageway forming a straight line as the A9 curves a little to the north at the start of the bypass. This road was originally built as the military road from Stirling to Crieff in the 1740s, which helps to explain the straightness of the route as far as the A822 at Greenloaning Junction.
