A854 Branch to Broadford Pier
The Pier at Corry, Broadford

The A854 is the former number for the Road to Broadford Pier from the then A850 (current A87) in Broadford on Skye.

As with many other short / defunct West Highland roads it was classified due to the high volume of traffic using the road to the pier when the steamer was the main form of long-distance transport. However, with the demise of the steamer, the pier has ceased to be an important destination for the community, and so the road was declassified. The precise date is uncertain, although it had certainly been downgraded by the time the Skye Bridge opened, and the A87 was extended across the island.

The road starts opposite the shops at the western end of the bridge, and runs north alongside the river, then behind the beach. It starts off as S2, but quickly drops to single track, albeit with plenty of passing places, and a number of gravelled parking areas making it feel wider. After barely half a mile, it comes to an end at the small harbour and pier in Broadford Bay.
