In Argyll, Scotland, Rest and Be Thankful is the name the A83 road has been called for centuries. After walking along the track, or the old drovers' road, from Loch Long toward Loch Fyne, travelers might rest at the top of the mountain and enjoy the breathtaking view over Glen Croe for a few minutes. We didn't have to walk, of course, but we did enjoy the incredible views. I didn't even mind the cold wind and off and on rain showers.
Car park at the top of the mountain where everyone rests, thankfully, and enjoys the view.
I love the gorgeous green mountains here.Click here to read more about the history of this road.
The modern road is higher up the side of the mountain and straighter.
Once through the mountain pass and down the other side, we arrive at beautiful Loch Fyne. This is a sea loch which extends inland 40 miles from the Sound of Bute. It is the longest of the sea lochs of Scotland.
This leads us to the bridge not too far from Inveraray where we toured Inveraray Castle. More about that next time.
Thanks for checking out my pics! :)
