|Route outline (key)|
The road starts on the B9090 on the southern edge of Nairn. That road passes under the railway line immediately to the north and so the junction is in cutting; we climb to the west, climbing past the Inverness-bound platform of Nairn station then continuing alongside the railway line briefly. We soon bear left and then enter open country.
After passing a wood the road narrows and we lose the central white line. There's then another wooded section before we go over a ridge then descend steeply. There's a sharp left-right zigzag which takes us onto the Muir of the Clans. Our road now remains fairly flat, although the River Nairn is to the left and another burn valley is to the right.
A long, straight section takes us into a wood. We pass a couple of houses in a clearing and presently return to open country. The road widens as we enter Clephanton and we meet the B9090 again at a crossroads; that road has priority. Our road remains S2 as it becomes wooded once again. There's a sharp right-left zigzag then we leave the wood just before reaching Croy, where the road splits. The right fork follows the original route of the B9091 into town, ending at a T-junction on the B9006 by Croy Shop. The B9091 mainline bypasses the village to end at a TOTSO on the same road, which continues ahead to Culloden and Inverness.
