Winding road leading to a country house.
Captured along the A830.

-The A830, sometimes known as the Road to the Isles (although in reality it forms only a part of that historic route), is a road in Lochaber, in the Highlands of Scotland, which connects the town of Fort William to the port of Mallaig.
The road passes through several small settlements, including Corpach, Glenfinnan and Arisaig and bypasses the village of Morar. Mostly single-carriageway, work was expected to begin in May 2006 on rebuilding the remaining single-track section between Arisaig and Lochailort, but was delayed by requirements of the EU Habitats Directive. Construction began in 2007. Contrary to many reports, the section is not the only single track trunk road still in use in the UK as there is still a section of single track on the A887 West of Invermoriston. On 25 May 2008 the road was featured in the BBC TV programme Country-life.

There is a traditional Scottish song about the road, called The Road to the Isles. The lyrics mention locations the road passes, including (in order): the Cuillin Hills, Tummel, Loch Rannoch, Lochaber, Shiel, Ailort, Morar, the Skerries and the Lews.-

    Lovely image Yan. Having been brought up in Fort William I would be interested to know the approx’ location of this shot.

  • Well this is very hard for me to find the exact location of the shot. But it is captured shortly after when we left Mallaig in Lochaber heading souths on the A830 towards Fort Williams.

    This is looking at my files, the previous and after shots of this one. Hope it helps.

    Thank you very much for the great comment. Cheers :)
