There is often a Snack Bar selling Hot and Cold Food with seating areas giving great views over the Mountains.

The image top is on the road up to the Rest and Be Thankful, often single lane at this point due to landslips.

The second image is looking down the A83 Road from the Rest and be Thankful with the 2,900ft, 884m Cobbler Mountain on the left. Although not a Munro, as it is just under 3,000ft, The Cobbler is one of the most popular hikes in Scotland due to its twin rocky peaks.

There are a number of Mountains over 3,000 feet, and just below, in this area for hiking, see the Click on Map above for links to Photo Tours.

The bottom image is of the A83 road leading northwest to Inveraray, passing the 3,317ft, 1,011m Beinn Ime Mountain. There is a Car Park down at the foot of this hill for a hike to Beinn Ime from there, named Butterbridge.
