The A835 is a road in the Scottish Highlands linking Inverness to Ullapool and the Far North of Scotland.


The A835 starts at Tore on the Black Isle, seven miles north-west of Inverness at a junction with the A9. The A835 crosses the Black Isle to Conon Bridge, where the A832 crosses, linking Muir of Ord to the west and Fortrose to the east, on the Moray Firth. From here the A835 follows the River Conon upstream through Contin, past Rogie Falls and Loch Garve to Garve Junction, where the A832 forks left through Strath Bran to Achnasheen.

The A835 turns north through the Strathgarve and Garbat Forests, then turns again to the north-west and climbs to the Glascarnoch Dam of Loch Glascarnoch. The road then passes through Dirrie More, a high and wide mountain pass between Sgurr Mòr (Fannichs) and Beinn Dearg, before descending to Braemor Junction where the A832 returns after making a vast circuit around the mountains of Wester Ross and across to the west coast at Gairloch.

The A835 descends from Braemor Junction through Strath More to the head of Loch Broom and then follows the lochside to Ullapool. From here it continues north through Strath Canaird to Ledmore Junction on the A837 road where the A835 ends.

The A835 is one of several trunk routes in Scotland where bilingual road signs (in English and Gaelic) are in use.[2]
