who told you about that road?

i have driven that section hundreds of times. if you have the time do it it's a nice we scenic detour. dont forget to stop at Neptune's staircase and the wee lock at the other end. if you have loads of time do the 18 mile there and 18 back Arkaig road (not for the faint hearted)
