The A858 (former B896) towards Carloway

In 1922, the B896 is listed as running from Barvas to Lionel, along what is now the A857. At Barvas it met both the A857 and A859, which followed the coast south to Callanish.

However, the 1932 OS map shows the B896 starting at the B8011 junction (which by then had become the terminus of a lightly shortened A858) south of Callanish and heading north then east around to Barvas to end at the junction with the A857, which had been extended north to Lionel. This was the original route of the A859. Whether the B896 ever ran from Callanish to Lionel at the same time is not yet known. This later southern section was short-lived and was quickly incorporated into an extended A858, with the renumbering presumably taking place in 1935.

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