B897 North Lochs Turn - Cuidhir

Windfarm on Arnish Moor

The B897 is a winding, single-track B-road on the Isle of Lewis. The road was originally unclassified but had gained its present number by 1932.

The road commences at the North Lochs Turn junction on the A859 a couple of miles to the south of Stornoway. It then heads south, dropping steadily across the Arnish Moor past its wind turbines, to reach the shore of Loch Orasaigh. After curving round the loch, the Grimshader (Griomsiadar) road forks left, with the B897 continuing south into the village of Crossbost. Here, just above the shore, it TOTSOs with the unclassified road through Liurbost, which is actually a much better quality route, being S2 more or less all the way, while the B897 has barely been single-track in places. Barely 200 m to the east, the B897 TOTSOs again, turning northeast to Ranish (Ranais), with a third TOTSO at the entrance to the village. The road then wiggles eastwards through the village to end at Cuidhir, terminating in a wide turning circle, with just a rough grassy track continuing.
