The C1064 follows the Essich Road south out of Inverness. This road was first built in 1726 by General Wades as part of his military road network, and was the original route of the road from Inverness to Fort William. It was fairly quickly superseded, however, by a new road along the shore of Loch Ness, now the B852, but despite this the old road has survived in use more or less without change to the present day.

Starting on the B862 Island Bank Road, the C1064 climbs up the winding Drummond Crescent onto Stratherrick Road. This section is not necessarily Wades Road, that more likely passing underneath later development. It then straightens out, heading more or less southwards and becoming Essich Road as it crosses the B8082 distributor road. The urban area is quickly left behind as the route climbs up onto the high moorland, passing through the scattered settlement of Essich and then Drumashie as it runs past Loch Ashie. The route finally comes to an end, again on the B862, at Ashie Moor. The military road follows the B road to the left, continuing the long route south to Fort William
