The Scottish government has allocated £500,000 for a study of the A82 to identify potential sites for improvements.

Detailed environmental and engineering surveys would assess where improvements were most needed.

Among the projects being considered are the introduction of overtaking lanes north of Crianlarich.

Also, traffic management measures to increase safety south of Fort William alongside Loch Linnhe.

Campaign group, the A82 Partnership, has described the road as one of Scotland's "most dangerous".
