The small village of Greenloaning lies on the River Allan a few miles north east of Dunblane. A scattering of older houses line the roadside, but the village is mostly comprised of small modern housing estates. The village grew on the south side of the river, where the military road from Stirling to Crieff crossed. Later, the railway line also passed through, adding a station, but it wasn't until the village was due to be bypassed that development really started, with the modern housing estates.

The main road past Greenloaning is the A9, which now runs on a dual carriageway bypass to the south of the village. It is the A822 that still follows the military road through the village, having been extended slightly to meet the A9 bypass to the south.


The A822 forks off the southern arm of the A9 at a grade separated fork junction, with south facing slips. However, this provides no connection to the Perth-bound A9. Whilst this is a less common movement, the growth of the village means there is now a much higher volume of traffic than when the junction was first built. The connection is made via the old line of the A9 which connects directly to the northbound carriageway of the A9. Rather than having a fork sliproad, however, the old road is turned to meet the A9 at right angles shortly before the two routes converged, and a central reservation gap makes the junction a full access one, although presumably very little traffic turns left in or right out, as these movements are properly catered for at the main fork junction.

The old junction between the A9 and A822 in the village therefore still survives, although priority is now given to the through A822 route. The boundary wall and pavement show the curve of the old A9 as it left the military road and headed east for Perth. The junction remains a give way, albeit with the changed priorities, and the old A9 route to the east is now unclassified, despite forming the link to the eastbound A9.
