B873, a scenic narrow road along Loch Naver

B873 is a very scenic road located in Sutherland, in the Highland region of northern Scotland, running alongside Naver lake.

It’s totally paved and subject to flooding on the very shores of Loch Naver. The lake is 10 km (6 mi) long and 33 m (108 ft) deep. The road is 18.34km (11.4 miles) long running east-west from Syre (B871 Road) to Altnaharra (A836 Road).
