NOT a Layby on the Northbound A82
The pull-in to the left is not a layby. The large sign clearly indicates "No Parking". It is a passing place, allowing slow moving vehicles to move out of the way allowing other traffic to pass.
The A82
The A82 runs from Glasgow to Fort William and Inverness, passing along the shores of Loch Lomond and Loch Ness and in the shadow of Ben Nevis along the way. The majority of the route is a trunk road and hence managed by Transport Scotland, who view the road as a vitally important link through the Scottish Highlands and beyond.

At 167 miles, the road is the second longest A-road in Scotland (after the A9) and along its route uses pieces of road first built in the 1750s.
