B856 Link at Strathcarron
The A890 (former B856) crossing the River Carron

The B856 was the short stretch of road linking the A890 (former B855) in Glen Carron with Strathcarron Station, crossing the River Carron and ending in the station yard on the north west side of the railway line, in front of what is now the post office.

The A890 originally came from Kyle, via a ferry at Stromeferry to Lochcarron and onto the A832 at Achnasheen. It was diverted onto a new road along the South of Loch Carron built in the 1960s, removing the need for a ferry crossing. This new road took over the entire length of the B856, except for the last few yards as the road was diverted on the other side of the Strathcarron Hotel to cross the railway line. Old maps suggest, however, that this had happened sometime earlier, with the road ending at the level crossing instead of in the station yard.
