Full Description

The present road from Achranich to Loch Tearnait and beyond was constructed in 1872-3. A route along the Rannoch River has probably existed since at least the medieval period when it connected the castles of Kinlochaline and Glensanda. Any early track did not necessarily follow the present route and may have changed its course several times. The road will be re-routed around a storage pond proposed for a new hydro scheme. <1>
