The C701 starts at the ferry pier at Symbister Harbour on Whalsay. It winds round the back of the harbour, and turns right at a junction with the C702. The route meanders eastwards through the village to the loch of Huxter, where it turns north east to pass Huxter and reach Isbister. Here the route almost doubles back on itself as it turns west and crosses the island to meet the C702 again at Creedyknowe.
