Road leading out of an industrial estate
Road leading out of an industrial estate
The road leads from the Vale of Leven Industrial Estate, passing a NS4077 : Packing company's building and a NS4077 : Timber company's building, and the entrance of a whisky bottling and blending plant, to meet Stirling Road at the Lionsgate Roundabout beside NS4077 : The Lion's Gate.

For much of its length, the road is bordered by lime trees. The cut-off to the left provides vehicular access to NS3978 : Strathleven Pumping Station.
Vale of Leven Industrial Estate

Of the very extensive lands that came to be associated with Strathleven House Link a portion was compulsorily purchased by the Board of Trade in 1947, and was developed by Scottish Industrial Estates Ltd in 1948 to form the Vale of Leven Industrial Estate. At the estate's inception, Westclox Ltd and Burroughs Adding Machines had factories here, but they are now gone. Polaroid, a later arrival, lasted until 2017. The estate is used by a number of smaller businesses, and there are some vehicle depots.
