A9 embankment at the Slochd
A9 embankment at the Slochd
The modern A9 speeds the motorist northwards but at the expense of one of the better known landmarks along the road between Perth and Inverness. The huge embankment almost fills the glacially carved hollow at the Slochd here on the very margin of the Cairngorms National Park.
