|Route outline (key)|
In the 1922 Road Lists, there were no A roads allocated to the Uists, so the main routes became B roads instead. The B892 started on the B891 north coast road to the west of Lochmaddy and headed southwest to Clachan, where it met the B893 west coast road, before continuing on to Carinish, by the North Ford, from where an unclassified tidal causeway led to Benbecula.
By 1932 the route had been renumbered as the A867 as far as Clachan, and then the A865 (which took the long way round to get to Clachan from Lochmaddy), which then continued south across Benbecula and South Uist. This left the B892 number free to be reused on Benbecula which hadn't had any classified routes in 1922.
In more recent years much of the route has been upgraded. The southern end, at Carinish, is now unclassified as the A865 now follows a new causeway onto Benbecula.
