Rest and be Thankful, Scotland July 2011

Rest and Be Thankful is a place high up on the A83 between Argyll and Bute in Scotland running from Tarbet (Loch Lomond) to Campbeltown at the southern end of Kintyre peninsula and onto Inverary.

From Loch Lomond / Tarbet you have to travel west through the Arrochar Alps beyond Loch Long to Loch Fyne.

The section of the A83 called Rest and be Thankful is named as the climb out of Glen Croe (not to be confused with Glencoe) is so long and steep at the end that it was traditional for travellers to rest at the top, and be thankful for having reached the highest point.
