A 82

A 82 is a fascinating road that runs from Glasgow to Inverness via Scottish Highlands. The passage in Glencoe looks dramatic whether you are driving on this road or walking in its proximity.

Standing on small outcrop above the road, overlooking monumental rocky ridge Aonach Eagach, cold February night is descending. In the dark, this section resembles an artery. The flow of cars with people and goods is moving along Glencoe's majestic landscape in both directions. This road was constructed by civil engineer Thomas Telford using existing Drover's road. The current tarmacked road, built in 1930's criss-crosses his alignment throughout the glen.
