A key viewing point on the A82 by Loch Ness has been closed off by Scotland Transerv (the guys and gals who sometimes slap the odd blob of Tarmac on our battered and bruised highways). The lay-by is sinking into the loch and its retaining wall is also badly damaged. A Highland MSP (member of the Scottish Parliament) has called for it to be fixed in time for the tourist season so that Loch Ness Monster hunters can use it to spot Nessie. But, frankly, the entire A82 road between Inverness and Drumnadrochit is in a dangerous state with terrible deep potholes and these should be fixed first.
Don’t worry if you are visiting the area; Loch Ness has lots of other lay-bys on both the north and south sides and you can also spot her from your home via our Loch Ness Live Cams
