The A82

The A82 runs from Glasgow to Fort William and Inverness, passing along the shores of Loch Lomond and Loch Ness and in the shadow of Ben Nevis along the way. The majority of the route is a trunk road and hence managed by Transport Scotland, who view the road as a vitally important link through the Scottish Highlands and beyond.

At 167 miles, the road is the second longest A-road in Scotland (after the A9) and along its route uses pieces of road first built in the 1750s.

Tomnahurich Swing Bridge

The Tomnahurich Swing Bridge carries the main A82 road across the Caledonian Canal on the outskirts of Inverness. Both the road and the canal run along the Great Glen, linking Inverness with Loch Ness and Fort William.
