The former B883 (now A863) near Sligachan

The original route of the B883 appears to have been to the west of the modern route on the Isle of Skye, following what is now the A863. The road has seen a substantial amount of improvements over the years, however, resulting in a largely wide and fast road in place of the meandering single track track that was originally given the B883 number. Leaving the original line of the A850 by the Sligachan Hotel the road headed west to Drynoch, then north along the west coast, including a detour around Loch Beag (the current road cuts off the corner with a new bridge). At Roskhill the road left the sea and continued northwards to the east of Duirinish to end back on the A850 at Dunvegan. Although that road had Class I status from the outset it was longer and more built-up.

However, the B883 must have been very short lived, as the A863 number was one of the first to be allocated after 1922, perhaps as early as 1924.
