|Just a couple of days into the new school term and already there has been trouble on the roads.|
At Claonaig, the bus taking children from Skipness to Tarbert was held up on the single track road when the driver of a white van refused to reverse and make room for it to pass.
|The driver of the van is reported to be a certain Carradale boat owner who has a reputation for blocking and refusing to give way.|
The road was blocked for around half an hour, with a queue of vehicles built up behind the blockage and the Claonaig to Lochranza ferry being forced to delay its sailing.
Free passage was only restored when Police attended the scene and instructed the driver of the van to move his vehicle.
