A9013 Union Street-Holburn Street Junction

Sorry it's a bit poor, but I took this as a 'sly' one while the lights were red. The A9013 turns right, though lane markings say ahead, while a left takes you to the A978.

Looking from the current road, where the upper of the two hairpins would have been, all that is left of the old road here is a dirt track as the new road has been built over it.

Looking south, this is one half of the old Devil's elbow double hairpin at Glenshee. I can't remember how we got onto it from the current alignment (which is to the right of the picture, above my dad's then car!). The second harpin would've been up at the top of the hill, bending round to the right.
