|Route outline (key)|
The B9010 leaves the pre-bypass route of the A96 (today numbered B9011) at Forres in Moray, to follow a broadly U-shaped route to the south of that A road before eventually meeting it once again some 17 miles later at Elgin.
The road leaves Forres High Street along the one-way Tollbooth Street before continuing on via Rafford to reach the valley of the River Lossie. It then passes close to both Dallas (the original for the later, much jumped-up, Texas version) and the slopes of the (to southern ears!) rather weirdly named Hill of the Wangie. We continue to follow the valley not particularly closely downstream to journey's end on the western side of Elgin.
