Black Mount Junction, commonly referred to by locals as the Carrbridge Junction, lies to the north west of the village of Carrbridge, and is where the modern A9 diverts to the west to bypass the village, with the A938 having been extended along the old A9 line. The junction is a simple at-grade T junction with a right turning lane in the centre of the A9, although most traffic making this movement will have turned off at Granish Junction near Aviemore to the south. There is also a left filter lane from the southbound A9, this being a much busier turn. Immediately to the north of the A9, a side road turns left off the A938, as it turns eastwards. This too is the old line of the A9, and leads west to The Slochd, running loosely parallel to the modern road.

The A9 dualling plans show that this junction will be replaced by a fully Grade Separated Junction, this will see the A938 pass under the A9 with looped sliproads to the west on both sides of the A9, with the unclassified road to Slochd (former A9) joining to the northern (southbound) loop and a forestry access off the southern loop.
