Rest and be Thankful

Rest and be thankful are the words inscribed on a stone near the A83 heading away from Loch Lomond in Scotland. The words were placed there by soldiers who built the original military road in 1753, now referred to as the Drovers' road. The old road takes its name because the climb out of Glen Croe is so long and steep that at the end it was traditional for travellers to rest at the top. This is the view they would see as they stopped for a moment. The current main road no longer keeps to the floor of Glen Croe but steadily climbs across the southern slopes of The Cobbler on the north side of the Glen.
