The B828 is a short but important road in west Scotland. It was originally unclassified but had gained its present number by 1932.
Starting at the car park for the Rest and be Thankful viewpoint on the A83 Summit, the B828 runs across an open hillside, and then drops down through a series of steep, sinuous bends in a forested glen to reach the B839 on its own way into Lochgoilhead. Whilst the bends are good fun for a cyclist, they can become tedious for motorists, especially if stuck behind a larger vehicle with oncoming traffic. The B828 is single-track for almost its entire length, with plenty of passing places - but then so is the B839.
