Looking northwest along the B987 (former A96
) at The Square in Kintore
Officially,1 the B987 is the former route through Kintore of the A96 – from Tavelty junction at the northern end of the Kintore bypass, via Northern Road, The Square, and School Road, to Broomhill roundabout south of the town.
This number is marked on Ordnance Survey and Google maps; however, on the ground, only one signpost (at NJ791148) shows the number "B987", and in the southward direction only. Otherwise the route is signed as "B977" from Tavelty to the junction with the B994 and as "B994" between that junction and Broomhill Roundabout.
