A simple mistake, or a copyright trap?
I believe the last S1 stretch was removed sometime between Aug 2002 and Nov 2003.
In Nov 2003 I was staying in Carloway, Lewis. There was freezing rain on the Sunday night. The roads were covered with a sheet of ice. Walking back to the croft from church I couldn't even walk up more than a gentle slope. I was booked on the dawn ferry from Tarbert. I had some trepidation regarding the 40-odd mile drive on a dark, unfenced (think sheep), twisty, relative unfamiliar, hilly road which was covered in ice - particularly the S1 stretch. Left Carloway very early but the ice had melted and the S1 stretch was now S2. Ended up with a very long wait for the ferry.
Think I would have said the road was widened to S2 partially online. The S2 rarely deviates far from where the S1 was. But it is a lot straighter and leveller. Much of the S1 is still visible.
The road remains stunning, but then that can be said about almost any stretch of road in Harris.

I suspect just a mistake, but it is an interesting one!
