|Route outline (key)|
The C12M number applies to two routes through Aboyne, which meet at a crossroads. With 4 end points, it is difficult to specify a start or finish, but the oldest part of the route appears to follow Bridgeview Road, from the A93, Ballater Road, south through the town centre to meet the B968, Charlestown Road just north of Aboyne Bridge over the Dee. This part of the route is shown in yellow on old OS maps, whilst the rest is white, the western section appearing more as a track or drive than a public road. This is now known as Rhu-na-Haven Road, and runs south from the A93, before turning east into the town centre. Here, it crosses Bridgeview Road and continues east along Huntly Road, rejoining the A93 at the eastern end of the town.
