This article is about the former B8006 along the shores of Loch Shiel near Acharacle. For the current B8006 in Caol, Fort William, see B8006.
Old and new routes of the former B8006 diverge
The original B8006 was once a more interesting, if even less sensible road than it is today, serving a small village on the northern shore of Loch Shiel. The road was originally unclassified; it had gained its present number by 1932 but was declassified again in the 1960s.
The road followed the mile-long route from the B850 (present A861) east of Dalnabreck near Acharacle eastwards to the Pier on Loch Shiel at Dalelia. To make matters even more confusing, the Dalelia road has been re-aligned, so that what was once the B8006 is now no more than an unsurfaced estate track in places. It seems, however, that the road was still numbered B8006 when its western end was rerouted.
