|Route outline (key)|
The B9003 is the final, classified part of a longer route connecting the town of Ellon to the fishing village of Collieston on the east coast of Aberdeenshire. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the 1940s.
Starting from a junction with the A975 at Cotehill crossroads (also known locally as "Collieston Cross"), it follows a somewhat indirect and sometimes narrow course vaguely eastwards. After passing through Kirktown of Slaines we pass a turn for the Cransdale car park and the sea becomes visible as we enter Collieston. After passing a turn for the harbour we climb into High Town and then pass through a modern housing estate before ending at a crossroads.
