|Route outline (key)|
The C116C starts at a bend on the B993 to the south of Inverurie town centre, and heads west, quickly crossing the A96 bypass and continuing to a T junction at Newseat. From here, a spur heads north, and then curves eastwards to meet the A96 at Blackhall Roundabout. The mainline, meanwhile, turns south, curving back to the south west as it follows the River Don to Bunhervie, then climbs over the hills to reach the C121C at Dalbraidie.
