The B8016 on Islay is many things, but don't expect it to be a fast road. On a map, it looks like it is an alternative to the A846, a bypass for Bowmore even. It also gives the impression of being more useful, with the junctions serving the east of the island, but in reality few people live out in the hilly south east corner of Islay, so that little traffic is generated. What the B8016 is, is a single-track road which, whilst often straight, has many little kinks and undulations
