A busy rural road is to be closed for two weeks for repairs from Monday.

The B974 Cairn O'Mount between Deeside and the Mearns will be closed between the AA phone box north of Bridge of Dye and Hunters Hill, east of Fasque House.

The road will be open over the middle weekend of the closure.

Aberdeenshire Council's head of roads, Philip McKay, said: "We appreciate the signed diversion route will be lengthy and apologise for any inconvenience caused."
