|Route outline (key)|
The B8010 crossed the Isle of Lewis. The road was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932.
The road originally started on the then-A858 about 3 miles west Stornoway and headed almost due west for its entire length. It followed the Pentland Road before bearing left on meeting the B8012 to reach Breasclete. After crossing the B896 (renumbered A858 in 1935 the road continued on to end by the pier.
By the 1960s the AA Book of the road suggests that the B8012 was extended to reach the A858, cutting back the B8010 to run only between the B8012 and Breasclete. However, the road's days were now numbered and it had been declassified entirely by the 1970s.
In more recent years there have been further changes to the roads on Lewis and the A858 has now been rerouted so there is now no classified road at the former B8010's eastern end.
