The former B889 in Lochboisdale

The B889 is the former number for the southern end of today's A865.

Starting on the B888 at Dalabrog (Daliburgh) the road headed vaguely southeastwards across flat land, soon reaching Loch Baghasdail (Lochboisdale). It ended here by the village pier.

In the first batch of road numbers issued in 1922, there were no A roads on the Uists, which meant that the main spine road was all the B888. However, very quickly and probably 1923 or 24, the A865 number was given to the main Uist spine road. This turned east at Daliburgh to run to the more obvious destination of Lochboisdale rather than Pollochar, thus taking over the entire B889, and leaving a spur of B888 to the south of Daliburgh.
