A82 by Loch Ness
A82 by Loch Ness
The A82 is the main road along Loch Ness, and from Inverness to and from Fort William and Oban. In summer it can be a nightmare, because it gets very busy and there are few places where there is any chance of overtaking, even if there's nothing coming the other way. Then of course there is the added hazard that most of the tourists are watching for the Loch Ness Monster. It wasn't too bad today, but this was a queue of cars which had accumulated behind the inevitable caravan followed by a campervan. Note the netting to prevent falling rocks hitting passing traffic or obstructing the road.
