The A832 (former B859) by Gruinard Bay

The 1922 Road Lists states that the B859 originally ran from the A835 at Braemore through Gruinard to Poolewe, which was the original northern terminus of the A832. The road followed a winding route through the glens, with coastal sections along (frequently at height) Little Loch Broom, Gruinard Bay and Loch Ewe leading to the road's terminus.

The road was short-lived. By 1932 and probably a lot earlier, the A832 had been extended along the full length of the erstwhile B859, leaving that number available for re-use in Dingwall.
