Gable and chimney ghost
Gable and chimney ghost
The traces of vanished buildings on the side of the Regent Hotel, Oban. The blue hoarding promises "Oban's most exciting hotel development" Whether that's a new one or an extension to The Regent is not clear. Whichever it is the hoarding is old and dirty and there's no sign of any work starting as yet!
The A85
The A85 is a major road running for 115 miles from Oban to Dundee, providing a nearly continuous route linking the east and west coasts of Scotland, passing some of the country’s highest mountains.

Some statistics seem to show that the stretch of the A85 between Oban and Tyndrum is among the ten most dangerous roads in Scotland (LinkExternal link BBC Scotland)
A85 Road
The A85 is a major road in Scotland. It runs east from Oban along the south bank of Loch Etive, through Lochawe and Tyndrum, Crianlarich, Lochearnhead, St Fillans and Crieff before passing through Perth, where it crosses the River Tay via Perth Bridge.
Between Tyndrum and Crianlarich the road multiplexes with the A82, where it merges with the main north-south road.
