A section of the busy A82 was closed at Loch Lomond for more than four hours after a rock fall at Pulpit Rock.

Traffic Scotland said a large boulder landed in the middle of the carriageway blocking the road in both directions.

A diversion was put in place from about 12:30 until 17:00, which added about 60 minutes to normal journey times.

The section of road affected by the rock fall has been subject to ongoing restrictions while contractors work to widen the stretch at Pulpit Rock.

Recent work has involved the removal of trees and vegetation.

Traffic lights have regulated the Pulpit Rock section for more than 30 years.
