Area code history

Ballachulish's original area code was 0062. This lasted until 1968 when the code was changed to 0855, as part of a nationwide plan to free up numbers starting 00 for other purposes.

The 0855 code eventually became 01855, following a renumbering programme that took place across the UK during April 1995.
