The Rothes Roundabout lies at the northern end of the village of Rothes in Speyside. It is a four way roundabout on the site of a former fork junction between the A941 and the B9015. Both routes run nearly parallel to the north, the A941 climbing steeply up out of the Spey Valley whilst the B9015 slowly turns north east to follow the river. With the construction of the roundabout, the steep ascent on the A941 was regraded, and a sweeping S-bend created to improve the angle of approach to the new junction layout. The meeting point of the two routes was also moved slightly to the north, with both the southern arm of the A941 and the B9015 adjusted slightly to meet the roundabout.

The fourth arm of the junction, which now lies opposite the B9015, is the access to the Glen Grant distillery and visitor centre. This road previously met the A941 a little to the south of the fork, nearly making a crossroads with New Street. New Street still meets the A941 in the same place, and has not been included in the roundabout. The A941 used to be a primary trunk route to Elgin, but this was swapped with the A95 to Keith, the signage finally seems to have been updated to reflect this.
