Eilean na Cille, south east of Benbecula is an island of the Outer Hebrides connected to Grimsay (South) by a causeway which carries the B891. The road was built to service the pier at Peter's Port, which was constructed in 1896 at cost of £2,000 - although the anchorage is awkward and should not be used without local knowledge.
