|Route outline (key)|
The C40 forms a sort of eastern relief road for Brechin town centre. It starts on the A935, Montrose Street at its eastern entrance to the town and heads north along Drumachlie Loan, skirting the urban area, before heading out into open country on Pitforthie Road. As it slowly converges with the B966, it suddenly turns left to meet the B road between Unthank and Trinity.
