Heading north on the A844 (former B879)

The B879 is described in the 1922 Road Lists as Ballanlay - Kames Castle, making it a short road on the Isle of Bute. As such it was essentially a northwards extension of the B878 (which at that time ended further west than it does now), heading north along Ettrick Bay as far as the B877 at a point between St Colmac and Kames Castle.

In the late 1920s it became part of an extended A844, as did the two roads it met at either end.
