|Route outline (key)|
The C48 starts on the A92 in Arbroath and heads north on Brechin Road. Near the edge of town, it turns left onto St Vigeans Brae to pass the small village of St Vigeans, now almost absorbed into Arbroath. Continuing northwards, the route passes through farmland, then crosses over the railway to reach the B965 at a crossroads at Chapelton.
