|Route outline (key)|
The C4E generally runs parallel to the A96, a little to the south of the main road. It starts on the A96 a couple of miles east of Forres and heads south to Glenburgie Distillery, where it turns east. At Cloves, a spur leads north to Alves on the A96, but otherwise the route continues east, with some sharp bends and dog-legs, to Pittencreich just outside Elgin.
