|Route outline (key)|
The B9009 is a medium-length B-road in south Banffshire.
The road starts in the centre of Dufftown, at a TOTSO with the A941. It climbs as it heads west out of the small distillery town and slowly turns south as it undulates across the hillside of Glen Rinnes. Slowly the valley floor rises to meet the road, just before the watershed where the road turns west briefly into Glen Tervie, which descends to Glen Livet. On that side of the watershed there are large forestry plantations, with the road hardly emerging before reaching Auchbreck, its terminus on the B9008.
The B9009 was originally much longer, continuing north east from Dufftown to Keith and the A96. However, the route was upgraded to become the A920 in the late 1940s, before that route swapped with the B9014, the number which the road still holds today.
