Borve Junction is the junction of the A87 and the A850 on the Isle of Skye. Prior to the extension of the A87 across Skye with the opening of the Skye Bridge, it was the junction of the A850 and A856. The junction has been slightly realigned as well, although whether that happened before or after the A87 was extended is unclear. To the west of the junction, the A850 has been rebuilt as an S2 carriageway, with the old single track roadway left largely intact to the north for almost a mile to Carbost.

The A87 now takes the mainline through the junction, with the old A850 line now a slip road solely for left turning traffic off the A87. All other movements are catered for at the new end of the A850, where it has been turned to meet the A87 square on at a give way line. Forming a staggered crossroads opposite the A850 is the minor road leading up the hill to Borve itself.
