A828-Loch Creran - Coppermine - 11505.jpg
A828 original route around Loch Creran

The road used to flood at the head of Loch Creran if there was a combination of heavy rain and high tide. Traffic was diverted around up the drive to a private house at Druimavuich. This used to be done by a temporary sign in the road but eventually these automatic signs were installed either side of the area that flooded. The detector seems to be in the base of a post in middle of that section. Everything was wind and solar powered - the sign was only illuminated as a vehicle approached.
