Boothby Road is a distributor around the edge of Fraserburgh, forming a de facto bypass and signed as such. There are no direct frontages onto the road.

Beginning at a T-junction with the A98, Boothby Road heads south with a relatively recent housing development on the left hand side (the other side of a pavement and wide verge) and fields on the right. There are a couple of access points to the development and a couple of farm accesses. After bending left, there is a roundabout accessing housing estates on both sides of the road. Climbing a hill, we approach the A981 roundabout with the route the road feels narrower, due to the pavement on both sides and the narrow width of the verges. After the roundabout, the road opens out again, with fields once more on the right hand side of the road, but no pavement on the town side of the road. The verge on the left drops away as we begin to descend back towards the coast, and Boothby Road runs at rooftop level for a short distance, though the fields are the same level as the road. A short way later and the roundabout with the A90 is reached, with Boothby Road ending: straight on being the B9033.
