I spend a lot of time on the roads around Argyll. In the winter, this is a fair challenge at times- but you do get used to the long journeys. You also tend to slow down- as these roads are amongst the most dangerous in the country.
But to be in the presence of these wonderful mountains and lochs is always a blessing.
And traffic jams? Well this is one of the few that affect me- where the road has been undermined by landslips.
Not that it is ever that busy.
I have come to appreciate my time in the car, and even to feel slightly resentful when I share this time with others. It is head space- to think and listen to the radio.
And to appreciate the scenery….
