|Route outline (key)|
The C30K starts on the B9077 at Heathburn, across the Dee from Cults. Almost immediately, there is a left turn, which is a spur leading back to the B9077, whilst the mainline continues south to meet the C5K near Auchlunies. After a short multiplex, the C5K turns off again, and the C30K continues south past Greenloaning, turning westwards at Redmire. It then drops down the hill to the Findon area of Portlethen, where it meets the C13K, Cookston Road. A short spur along the cul-de-sac of Well Brae is also included, which shows the historic line of the route, before the houses were built, which followed Schoolhill Road then Hillside Road to the A90. This section seems to now be unclassified.
