A828 Connel Bridge - Coppermine - 9351.jpg
A828, Connel Bridge, Argyll

Driving over the Connel Bridge towards Fort William. Connel Bridge has had an odd history. From soon after its construction road vehicles were sometimes carried across on a railway wagon. In 1914 it was converted to allow road vehicles to drive over it, and for the next 50 years the bridge was used by both road and rail traffic. This stopped with the closure of the Ballachulish Branch Railway in 1966, and since then the bridge has been used exclusively by road traffic, controlled through the narrow roadway by traffic lights.

Ford to Dalavich Road - Coppermine - 6949.jpg
Ford to Dalavich Road

A single track road running from the A816 alongside Loch Awe. The A816 was closed due to an accident so traffic was diverted off along this road, two vans met and one drove into a ditch. Here the one in front is trying to drag out the one behind.

Road on Canna - Coppermine - 17817.jpg
Road on Canna

This is the road on Canna, the island is owned by the National Trust for Scotland so it will be noticed that the Land Rover has no road tax. The road runs from the pier around the bay, it comes to a gate where it goes either through a farmyard or over the beach.

I did notice that the surface is smoother than the A82 North of Tarbet!

The Road to Spurn - Coppermine - 3598.jpg
The Road to Spurn

Or rather the road from Spurn. This is facing north from the end of Spurn head. There is a 'car park' (rubble dropped onto a beach) to our left which is as far as the public can go - there is a dock slightly further out behind us. In front is Spurn head lighthouse, which you can see as a dot on the horizon from the mainland.

Just after leaving the end of the head we plunge through sand dunes which spread themselves over a dozen or so feet on either side.

Cross the track

There used to be a tramway down the spit, most of which is now completely buried under the sand dunes. Every now and then rails emerge, cross the road, and promptly disappears again

Diversion ahead

The first major diversion, where I presume the old road has been buried by the sand. Its a sharp left turn with a blind brow and a steep hill. Had fun reversing up it shortlay after taking the picture.

The diversion rejoins the old track (just visible joining to our right in the distance) before diving off it again.

The track runs along the western coast - the eastern coast is all of 10 feet away over the dunes to our right.

Along the cobbles

The cobbles arre pretty course, and in many places have large amounts of sand on them. I had to back into a passing place which was mainly sand - was happy that the car didn't sink!
