North of the banks of Loch Lomond lies the A83, a vital artery connecting the ‘central belt’ of Scotland with Argyll, all the way to Campbeltown and Kintyre. As it winds its way along the shore of Loch Fyne, the route reaches its highest point 10 miles beyond Tarbet at the famous pass called Rest and Be Thankful, situated 245m above sea level. It was there that driver Alan Conley took this picture of a new 8.9m, 30-seat Enviro200. It is one of two identical vehicles delivered recently by Alexander Dennis to West Coast Motors, which now has a fleet of 280 buses and coaches operating across Scotland.
