A82 with snow fence before it
A82 with snow fence before it
This black-plastic fencing with holes in it is designed to catch the snow before it drifts over the A82. It works, as long as the wind is from the expected direction. The A82 across Rannoch Moor has many sections with snow-plough guidance poles on each side for use when the road is entirely obscured by drifts.
