The A816 on the Western Outskirts of Loch Gilphead
Coille Haulage Volvo (KU59 DWX) carrying a cargo of logs, heads south along the A816 towards its junction with the A83 at Lochgilphead.

The southern end of the A816 was originally the A817; many of the signs at this end of the road are still green, trunk route signs from its previous life. It was presumably downgraded ('de-trunked') because of the large number of bends and narrow bridges that still line the route north (LinkExternal link SABRE).
The A816
The A816 is approximately 36 miles long and forms a main connection on the west coast of Scotland between Lochgilphead on the A83 and Oban on the A85. It starts at a roundabout junction with the A83 trunk road on the western fringes of Lochgilphead and ends at Argyll Square in the centre of Oban where it meets the A85, close to the Railway Station and ferry terminal, passing through Kilmartin Glen along the way.
