The C16L starts on the A97 near Auchingoul and heads south east, winding along the hillside above the River Deveron. It drops a little down the hill into the village of Inverkeithny, before climbing across a steeper, wooded slope. It then turns around to the south and winds across the landscape to meet the B9024 near Easterfield.
