The small village of Rhynie lies on the River Bogie south of Huntly in western Aberdeenshire. It is laid out to a grid iron plan around a central green, with old stone houses stretching away in each direction. The main road through the village is the A97, which runs south from Huntly and over the hills to Deeside. The A941 also terminates here, having taken a very scenic route east from Dufftown.

Junction

The junction is a simple crossroads with the A97 keeping priority through the village, the other two roads just having give way lines. The junction lies at the north east corner of the green in the village square. The A941 approaches from the west, and the road opposite it is the C75S that leads to the small village of Clatt. When the A941 was originally extended south from Craigellachie, it ran to the junction further south at Glenbogie, and it was the B9002 that ran to Rhynie. However, the routes were soon swapped, the road to Rhynie being slightly better quality, and higher trafficked.
