|Route outline (key)|
The B9008 is a cross-country B-road in south Banffshire.
The road starts on the eastern edge of Tomintoul on the A939 (former B970), where that road has to TOTSO. We initially head northeastwards along a dead-straight road before crossing the Conglass Water and bending to the left. The road then climbs through a wood before descending through another to reach Knockandhu, which is at the bottom of a small valley. The road then crosses a ridge and descends into Tomnavoulin, in Glenlivet.
The road runs along the main street of the small village before crossing the River Livet and following the glen downstream. After a mile or so the road bends round to the right to cross a side valley, with a dogleg bend in Auchibreck where the B9009 is met. The mainline of the glen is reached once more and there is shortly another dogleg to avoid crossing the river. The road then passes Glenlivet cemetery and meets the B9136.
Glenlivet soon runs into the valley of the River Avon. This is followed downstream for another couple of miles; the road is remarkably straight. Eventually the road bends to the left to end on a hairpin bend on the A95 to the east of Bridge of Avon.
