Road closures may affect Highland walkers
Bookmark and Share
Those heading for the Highlands to enjoy walking in their warm winter coats may need to revise their plans after a road in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park was closed.

The A83 has been shut at Rest and Be Thankful on the western edge of the area after a landslip, which has followed days of heavy rain in the area.

It means any walkers looking to head westwards from the central belt to areas such as Glen Fyne may wish to go elsewhere.

The road closure is not the only one visitors to the Highlands will face this month, as part of the A82 is set to shut for the removal of a large and unstable rock on adjacent Forestry Commission Land between December 9th and 12th.

Such work will take place just south of Fort William.

One alternative option for visitors planning to be in Fort William will be to arrive by rail, as trains from Glasgow travel along a different route to traffic on the A82, entering the town from the east after skirting Rannoch Moor.
