The C1009 starts on the B9006 in Ardersier and climbs, quite steeply at times, up onto the low hillside above the pretty coastal village. Despite the sharp bends between fields, the road is running across a plateau for most of its length, coming to an end just over a mile later on the C1005 at Baddock.
