Invermoriston is a small village on the west side of Loch Ness in the Great Glen. The village offers basic services for locals and visitors alike, but cannot compete in the tourist trade with either Drumnadrochit to the north or Fort Augustus to the south. The village's most visited attraction is probably the picturesque Thomas Telford bridge, built in 1813, which crosses the spectacular River Moriston falls. This bridge used to form part of the main road between Drumnadrochit and Fort Augustus but was replaced in the 1930s with the new bridge used today.

Junction

The junction is a simple give way, with the A82 turning sharply to the right when heading north, whilst the A887 turns off to the left, not that many people would make this turn as it is much shorter to use the A87 from Invergarry when heading to Skye from the south. Despite this, there is nevertheless a short painted turning lane, for traffic turning left into the A887. For right turning traffic off the A82 there is a hatched right turn lane, however due to the sharp bend that the A82 has at the junction this area is often used by larger vehicles as they turn, so does not necessarily prevent queueing on the main road.
