B896 Barvas - Port of Ness
This article is about the original B896 in the north of Lewis.
For the former B896 on the west side of Lewis, see B896 (Garynahine - Barvas)

For the current B896 on Great Cumbrae, see B896.
The former B896 (now A857) at Galson Lodge

In 1922, the B896 is listed as running from Barvas to Lionel, along what is now the A857 in the north of the Isle of Lewis. At Barvas it met both the A857 from Stornoway and A859, which originally ran south from here to Callanish.

However, the 1932 OS map shows the B896 starting at the B8011 junction (then the terminus of the A858) south of Callanish and running around to the junction with the A857 at Barvas, which had by then been extended north to Lionel along the original route of the B896. Whether the B896 ever extended from Callanish to Lionel at the same time is not yet known. The southern section is now part of the A858, although it is not yet certain when this happened.

Either way, the B896 appears to have had two 'lives' on Lewis before being re-born on Cumbrae, and both were pretty short lived!
