Location Description inside of this bend at Glenfarquhar House, especially from where the kerb stops and southeastwards towards Auchenblae; down through exposed cable on roadbed and beyond
Road Name Auchenblae to Stonehaven back road
Hazard Type Unevenness due to rut or gully
Hazard Description southeastern end of the inside of this bend. Enormous stock and log transports and tractors have obliterated the margin of the road because there is no kerb here and nothing stops them mounting the grassy bank; this pushes up mud and stones that clog the drain; severely eroded road edge down to the bedrock; bend is not wide enough for current traffic, reflective posts needed, flooding worsened it
Approximate Size a 50 metre stretch of the inside of the bend and beyond
Approximate Depth varies down to 12" or more
Approximate distance from Kerb kerb and road margin obliterated
