Pitcoudie Roundabout is a junction in Glenrothes.
The B969 was to be a dual carriageway and the junction would have been grade separated in the form of a folded diamond. The junction name was to be Pitcairn Interchange. This was to be built in stages. The first stage was to build one carriageway of the dual carriageway along with Formonthills Road and Cadham Road as a staggered junction. No roundabout was ever intended. The distinct kink on Formonthills Road to the north of the roundabout was to form part of the northbound slip road. Another part of the slip road was built beneath the footbridge which can be seen as a tapered strip of tarmac used as a layby. So far everything went to plan but then the new town was scaled back in size and the road network was similarly reduced. A dual carriageway was no longer required and the junction remained as it was until the 1980s when Cadham Road was realigned to meet the B969 opposite Formonthills Road and a roundabout was built. The old straight alignment of Cadham Road can be seen as a gap between the trees.
