B894 Clachan - Locheport
Loch Euphort

Much of North Uist is a confused web of land and lochs - some sea water, some fresh water. The east coast is the 'worst', and as a result much less heavily populated than the other parts of the island. Indeed, the only roads which can be said to serve the east coast are the A865 into Lochmaddy and the B894 to Loch Euphort.

The road starta on the A867 (former B892) about half a mile east of its junction with the A865 at Clachan and head east, never far south of the 6-mile-long Loch Euphort, weaving between the fresh water lochans that dot this landscape. It is single track throughout, without any particularly sharp bends or noticeable gradients. After just 2½ miles, the road reaches the township of Loch Euphort, and the B road ends without ceremony at a road junction, just short of the shore. This is unusual, as these straggly dead end B roads in the Highlands and Islands normally terminate at a pier, but its not clear if there ever was a pier here. From the junction an unclassified road bears sharply round to the right and continues for another 2½ miles eastwards until the last house is reached, still 2½ miles from the open sea!

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Cringrawal - Loch Eport
