B973 Corgarff - Forbestown
This article is about the former B973 in upper Strathdon.

The Bridge of Newe

The original route of the B973 was from the B970 (now A939) east of Corgarff Castle east to the A97 on the far side of Forbestown, descending through Upper Strathdon as it went.

In the 1980s this route was incorporated into an extended A944, after a lengthy multiplex with the A97. However, the road still feels like a pleasant rural B road, passing through some stunning Aberdeenshire countryside along the way.
