|Junctions related to the Highland Tourist Route|
The northern junction between the A944 and A97 lies a little to the north of Mossat Shop, the once legendary store which appears to have sold everything imaginable is now a 'humble' Antiques shop, but its name lives on with the locals. The shop served a wide rural area of fields between forestry plantations on the higher slopes. The scenic Strathdon lies to the south, whilst Alford is also a tourist destination, so the shop served a wide range of customers. The junction is a simple T junction, with the A944 and A97 multiplexing to the south past the shop and on through Kildrummy. The A97 continues north, despite the TOTSO - the shared arm meets the give way line - eventually reaching the Moray Firth Coast, whilst the A944 heads east to Alford, and eventually Aberdeen.
