The B8059 on Lewis

The B8059 connects the Isle of Lewis to the adjacent island of Great Bernera. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1930s.

The only way to get to the B8059 is to use the B8011 from the A858 at Garrynahine (Gearraidh na h-Aibhne) near Callanish (Calanais). After travelling roughly south west for a little over 3 miles across open peat bog, the B8059 turns off to the right at the Bernera Turn. To start with, our road is briefly single-track, but quickly widens to S2, albeit not necessarily with a centre line.

The route is never exciting. It winds through the base of a very shallow valley, passing rough moorland and the very occasional house. The road narrows back to single-track for a while, and then returns to S2 as we reach the scattered community of Lundale. The road heads in a roughly north westerly direction, going through Crulivig (Crùlabhig) as it drops down towards the coast. Traditionally, the B8059 terminated just before crossing the S1 Great Bernera Bridge, although most maps now show it crossing onto Great Bernera and terminating as it reaches the land, so there is still no classified road on the island.
