Road B885

Road B885

Located right in the centre of the Isle of Skye in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, the B885 is one of the most challenging drives of the country. It’s so narrow that shouldn’t be attempted by novice drivers.

It’s a narrow but metaled single-track road with passing places that cuts across the isle through narrow forest-laden glens. The road is extremely narrow in some sections, totally impassable for 2 cars at the same time. It shouldn’t be attempted by those who don't know how to reverse. 

This small road is 15.12km (9.4 miles) long and links Bracadale, a settlement and parish on the west coast of the island and Portree,  the largest town and capital of the isle. The main risk on this scenic winding road is coming around a blind corner to discover a vehicle proceeding toward you at high speed.
