Subject notes
The road, the A832, was later tarred and widened but the gradient is still 14 to 20%. Roads in the West Highlands were single track with the exception of a few main routes which were widened in the 1920s and 30s. Widening of principal routes has continued, but single track roads with passing places remain.
