Community Council & SC secure 40mph limit on Kinbuck Road

Stirling Council has decided to reduce the speed limit on the B8033 between Dunblane and Kinbuck
from 60mph to 40mph. This follows an earlier decision by them to clear the vegetation from and
resurface the narrow footpath.
Ailsa Gray, the chair of Dunblane Community Council, said, “we raised this matter with Stirling
Council after being approached by residents concerned about road safety. I am grateful that Stirling
Council agrees with the local community that the high number of vulnerable road users warrants a
reduced speed limit.”
Local Councillor, Alasdair Tollemache said, “This is very good news for residents. This road is the
only route connecting the rural communities between Kinbuck and Dunblane and is extremely
popular with those who use the road to walk alongside, cycle and ride horses. It has also been
made more popular with runners following the introduction of the 12km Dunblane Road Race.”

There are plans for this year’s Dunblane Road Race to be held on Sunday 26 May at 1pm. The route
is north along the B8033 through the village of Kinbuck, crossing the Allan Water at Cromlix before
turning left and following the Auchinlay Road back to Dunblane High Street, before finishing at Andy
Murray’s Gold Post Box.
