At 245m above sea level it’s time to Rest and Be Thankful

Published: 05 Mar 2019

North of the Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond lies the A83, a vital artery connecting the Central Belt with Argyll, West of Scotland, all the way to Campbeltown and Kintyre.

As it winds its way along the shore of Loch Fyne the route reaches its highest point 10 miles beyond Tarbet at the famous pass called Rest and Be Thankful, situated 245 metres above sea level.

It was there that driver Alan Conley took this picture of a new 8.9m, 30-seat Enviro200. It is one of two identical vehicles delivered recently by Alexander Dennis Limited to West Coast Motors, which now has a fleet of 280 buses and coaches operating across Scotland.
