|Route outline (key)|
The B835, as listed in the 1922 Road Lists originally ran from Dunoon to Sandbank along what is now the A885, with its southern end along Argyll Street, now one-way northbound. As such, the B835 formed a short cut for the A815 which took (and still takes) the longer route along the coast, past the ferry piers.
The road was upgraded to Class I status, becoming the A885, sometime around 1930, and apart from a fairly modern spur to accommodate a one way system in Dunoon town centre, the route is unchanged.
