Some parts of the A82, the road from Glasgow to Fort William, require great care and attention with good driving skills. It's a beautiful and scenic journey but it is also a narrow and winding road. It's important not to be in too much of a hurry or try to overtake when you can't see the way ahead. It's also important that you use lay-bys to pull over if there is a queue of traffic behind you.
