Motorists in Argyll have been forced to endure a major diversion after the closure of the A83 road.

No traffic was allowed between Inveraray and Lochgilphead.

Work was being carried out to recover a tanker from the road. Traffic Scotland reported the road was clear just after 14:00.

It had suggested drivers divert via Dalmally and Oban. The diversion added at least an hour to most journeys on the route.
