|Route outline (key)|
The original B976 ran in a similar area to that number's present route but further north.
The road started on the A93 in Banchory and headed north to meet the B977 where it turned westwards. It went through Torphins where it crossed the B975 before bearing northerly once more. Presently the road descended into the Howe of Alford, where it ended on the A944 to the west of Alford itself.
The road was upgraded to Class I status later in the 1920s. It became the A980, which it remains.
