Loch Restil at Rest and Be Thankful this morning


Up at Rest and Be Thankful this morning [15th December] to photograph Transport Scotland’s progress on the emergency diversion route for the landslide-prone A83, this necklace of ice teeth strung across Loch Restil caused a swift diversion into a layby.

Developments with the old military road are going well, with work concentrating on preparing the ground for the resurfacing of the entire middle section.

In unpleasantly dreich rain mist, everywhere you looked there were groups of men and machines culverting, levelling and dumping.

There’ll be a photograph leading our analysis of the Jacobs’ draft study of options for a permanent solution to the endemic unreliability¬† of the a83, which will be published tonight or tomorrow morning.

  1. I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw the “causeway” across Loch Restil as I traveled to Glasgow this morning. Luckily I was on the bus so I could view it at my leisure without driving off the road!

  2. Is it only my sense of humour or did anyone else seeing the picture wonder if an ice causeway had been among the options sifted out at the early stages of the Jacobs study?
    LOL and season’s greetings
