Step 1 This is the start of the puzzle. There are a number of different approaches to solving ABC View puzzles, this is just the one I used to solve this particular puzzle.
Solve this puzzle for yourself at the same time.



Step 2 The C cannot go in any of these squares in Row 5 because the clues across the bottom could not be satisfied.



Step 3 Therefore this square has to be A to satisfy the left clue.



Step 4 Similarly these squares cannot be B (because of the bottom clues), which allows Row 5 to be completed.



Step 5 Note: I've marked the two squares in Row 5 with an X to distinguish them from the other empty squares (but this isn't required to solve the puzzle).
The A in Row 1 cannot go in either of these two squares because of the top clues.



Step 6 In addition, the A in Row 1 cannot go in these squares either, because the bottom clues could not be satisfied (since there would be a B or a C in the way).
Therefore the A goes in Column 4.



Step 7 Which means that this square is X (because of the right clue).



Step 8 Column 5 now has exactly three spaces for the A, B and C, so this square can only be A (to satisfy the bottom clue).



Step 9 Which means that the B and C in Column 5 can only go one way around (because of the right clue).



Step 10 The A in Column 3 cannot go in these squares as there is already an A in Row 1 and Row 4.



Step 11 Nor can the A in Column 2 go in this square because the bottom clue could not be satisfied (as there would be a B or a C in the way).
Therefore the A goes in Row 3, and Row 4 is X (because of the bottom clue).



Step 12 The B and C in Column 3 can go one way around as Row 2 already has its C.



Step 13 The B in Row 1 can only go in one place to satisfy the top clues.



Step 14 The A in Row 2 can only go in one place (because of the A's in Column 1 and Column 4).



Step 15 The B and C in Column 1 can only go one way around to satisfy the left clue.
Column 2 is also complete.



Step 16 The puzzle will now complete as there is only one place for the C in Row 4.



Step 17 The completed puzzle.
