Comment posted Economic development strategy for the west Highlands by Graeme mccormick.
The problem here is not national political will; it is failure over generations to have a strategy and lack of finance at present.
A & B C has to mortgage it’s assets to build the roads , the tunnels and the bridges in a deal with national government to pay an instalment repayment plan.
If we open up Argyll and Bute they become the Fynest part of but integral to the Central Belt.

All councillors should be part of the administration but have a free vote except for the appointment of lead councillors which should be divided up in proportion to the population share of each area committee.
That might just put a sort of break on factionalism
