|Route outline (key)|
The B9022 is a cross-country B-road in northeast Scotland.
The road starts on the A96 to the west of Huntly and on the far side of the River Deveron from the town. After running downstream alongside the river for a short distance the road turns northwards and climbs out of the valley. It goes through a wood called The Bin Forest - named after a nearby hill - before dropping down into the river valley once more. The railway bridge where the Aberdeen to Inverness line crosses the River Deveron is clearly visible and the road soon goes under the line itself whilst following the river downstream.
After crossing the River Isla (a tributary of the Deveron) the B9118 turns off to the right; this road continues alongside the River Deveron. The B9022, meanwhile, continues northwards and climbs once more. It is crossed by the B9117 at Rothiemay after which it goes through another wood. The road then continues across the fields with the prominent cone of Knock Hill visible ahead. We pass to the east of this to reach a T-junction on the A95.
There is a multiplex north for well over a mile to the scattered village of Gordonstown. Here the B9022 regains its number by turning left and heads north once more across undulating terrain with the occasional wood. The road passes the prominent Durn Hill before ending at a T-junction on the A98 just to the south of Portsoy.
