The A850 road is one of the principal roads of the Isle of Skye in the Inner Hebrides off the west coast of mainland Scotland.[1]

It connects Dunvegan Castle and the town of Dunvegan and the north of the island with the A87 road for Portree that then crosses to the mainland road system. The more direct road connecting Dunvegan with the A87 is the A863.
