  • This morning road closed at Kilmartin due to a serious accident involving a log lorry. Looks horrific.

    Although the cause of the accident is yet to be determined I wonder when the powers that be will recognise that our rural roads are not suitable for such large wagons, with logs or wind turbines. Although the latter do tend to go much slower and with an escort.

    • There was a report in one of the local papers a couple of weeks ago about an Eagle Slicer part needing replacing so one was sent up the A82(?) by road and through Fort William at a very busy time, causing even more congestion than usual.

    • Reportedly a 3-vehicle crash at 8.10 am – no serious injuries but the road is likely to be closed for several hours.

  • If there were no serious injuries then those involved are very lucky indeed. What I saw was a mess.

    Once again, a major incident on one of our main roads and little option of a detour. Businesses affected, public transport affected and meetings cancelled. The only notice of the accident from Oban was, apparently, just outside Oban and at the Ford Road end where traffic was turned back. Nothing else along the route.

  • Accident was on the bend just past the pub, coming out of Kilmartin towards Lochgilphead. Road was closed at Ford Road end – not sure about the other side.
