|The subject of the roads on Kintyre, and particularly the road through Carradale, have been the subject of much talk lately.
The B842 between Carradale and Campbeltown still has traffic lights just north of Ugadale following a landslide there some months back. Although the council appear resigned to having to spnd a lot of money on repairs there remains no further evidence of when any work will actually begin.
The single-track road north from Carradale to Claonaig continues to provide thrills and spills to those using it on a regular basis, with several accidents recently, and the usual selection of bemused drivers not familiar with the art and etiquette of driving on roads like this.
On the website of the Mull and Iona Chamber of Commerce you can find an excellent guide to Driving on Single Track Roads that applies just as well to Kintyre as it does to the islands. There's another very good guide on the Undiscovered Scotland website.
