The B8067 is the shortest of Tiree's 5 B-roads, but that in no way detracts from its pleasures. Originally unclassified, the road gained its number around 1930, along with the other roads on the island.
The road starts at the northern end of the small village of Balemartine on the B8066 and heads west in a series of beautiful long straights between drystone walls that rise and fall across the undulating contours. The occasional houses that sit alongside are all at right-angles to the road, making the most of the views to east and west, while to the south the rocky bulk of Carnan Mòr, Tiree's highest point, is topped by the golf-ball radar station.
Heading into Balephuil
As the road drops into Balephuil, the spectacular beach of Tràigh Bhì suddenly appears ahead, with a little row of cottages sitting just above it on the opposite side of a field. The road curves round to the south, running along the rocky shore interspersed with miniature sandy bays on the right, and a row of houses on the left. At the cattle grid, the B8067 ends, but the road continues south to West Hynish.
