A867 Sruth Mòr - Clachan na Luib

Strangely, it is the A867 and not the A865 that provides the main north-south link across North Uist.

Starting just west of the Ferry port of Lochmaddy, the A867 crosses the eastern side of the island, meeting the A865 at both ends, but cutting about 18 miles from the journey. The northern junction is a TOTSO as you leave Lochmaddy.

A867

After recent upgrade works, this road is now S2 for its entire length, with the old road still in evidence alongside for much of the route. The busiest time on this road is just after the ferry arrives from Uig, when both carriageways are in use as the traffic stream south. One for visitors, and the other for the locals who spend half their time overtaking!! The only other classified road that the A867 meets is the B894 Loch Euphort Road, about a mile north of its southern end.

Originally numbered as the B892, the A867 came into being in the mid-1920s. Given that the A866 is on Lewis our road must have come into being later than the more roundabout A865, suggesting that at one time, the long way round was the more obvious route.
