The C1012 is a long route across the hills from Alness to Tain, running roughly parallel to the A9, and taking a short route. However, the road is rarely more than a narrow S2, and whilst there are few speed limits along its length, the roadside is dotted with houses and accesses, with few straights offering forward visibility. It is also the route of the NCN1 cycle route, and as such can be busy with cyclists. It is, however, a pleasant route with a number of forestry car parks offering walks.

The route starts on the C1016 on the northern fringe of Alness, and runs east, coming to an end on the A9 Tain Bypass. The bypass bisects the road, which continues ahead, albeit accessed from a separate junction, as the C1207 into the town centre. The road crosses the Aldie Burn on Quebec Bridge, which takes its name from Canadian timber workers stationed in the area during the First World War.
