Crathes Crossroads lies in the small village of Crathes, a short distance east of Banchory. The junction appears to have always been a staggered crossroads, although perhaps the current layout accentuates the stagger to provide more space for turning traffic. For many years, the two side roads were unclassified, and the A93 passed through the village with little delay from turning traffic, but at some point in the last half century the A957 was re-routed, partially on a new alignment, to meet the A93 here after crossing a new Durris Bridge over the Dee.

The junction is now therefore where the A957 terminates on the A93, and ever so slightly to the west the minor road heads north. Right turn lanes are provided in the centre of the A93, but due to the direction of the stagger they overlap, minimising the room available for turning traffic.
