|Route outline (key)|
The C1K is a lengthy route which runs between Stonehaven and Laurencekirk, loosely parallel to the A90, albeit curving along the foothills to the west. It starts on the A957 in the centre of Stonehaven as Evan Street, quickly forking right onto Arduthie Road. This becomes Kirkton Road near the station and runs out to the A90 bypass. With no central reservation gap, through traffic needs to use Broomhill Road to the south, although this is not apparently part of the C1K. Beyond the bypass, the route turns south west and starts climbing across the lower slopes of the hills, passing various scattered farms and houses along the way. It then turns south east at Glenfarquhar, dropping steeply into the village of Auchenblae. After wiggling through the village (the precise route is unclear), the C1K reaches the B966, and after a short multiplex westwards, continues south to meet the A937 in Laurencekirk.
