|Route outline (key)|
In 1922, there were no A-road numbers allocated to the Uists. As a result, the road from Lochmaddy Pier to Tigharry along the northern coast of North Uist was originally allocated the B891 number, with its continuation back to the B892 (which the B891 had already met on the outskirts of Lochmaddy) at Clachan numbered as the B893. It is not clear why the B891 and B893, which met end on, were numbered as two separate routes, but this happened in a number of other places too.
