‘Significant’ landslide forces closure Rest and Be Thankful

A trunk road through Argyll has been hit by a "significant landslide" for the second time in a matter of weeks.

The A83 at the Rest and Be Thankful was shut overnight as forecasters warned of heavy rain.

The route was shut for five weeks following a 10,000 tonne landslide in August, only reopening on Monday.

The nearby old military road is also closed, meaning motorists will have to follow a 59-mile (95km) diversion.

Bear Scotland said both routes would remain closed until a further assessment is complete and it is considered safe.
