The B9027 is a short B-road in north Aberdeenshire.
The road starts on the B9170 (former A948) to the immediate northwest of Cuminestown. This junction is adjacent to a bridge over the Burn of Monquhitter (which the B9027 follows for most of its route). We head east along a dead-straight road, bypassing the village to the north before bending sharply left. The unclassified road coming in from the right here provides a short-cut to the eastern side of Cuminestown and the B9170 to the east.
After crossing the Burn of Monquhitter there is a sharp right-hand bend at a crossroads (the left-hand arm of which is a private lane leading into the grounds of Auchry House) and the road runs parallel to the burn across the fields before zigzagging right then left to cross it and a tributary. A mile or so further on is another sharp bend to the left and bridge over the Burn of Byth (another tributary) before the road goes through New Byth. It runs along Bridge Street, Main Street and Banff Road with sharp corners between each street.
After leaving town the road follows the valley for a short distance before climbing out. It ends shortly afterwards at a T-junction on the A98 on the edge of the grounds of Byth House.
