|Route outline (key)|
The C45M starts on the A980 just south of Bridge of Alford. Until recently, this was a crossroads with the A944 as well, but following the realignment of the junction, the A944 now passes slightly further east. The C45M then heads south, following a road first laid out as a Military Road 250 years ago. The route crosses the hill, dropping down to meet the C43M at Lynturk, a short distance east of Muir of Fowlis. The junction and next section of the old road is possibly lost, although the nearby A980 probably follows it for a short distance thereafter.
