From here you can see stunning views around Loch Ness and the surrounding area. This is the B862 from Fort Augustus which is known as General Wade’s Military Road and is part of the Jacobite story. General Wade was sent from London by George I in 1724 to report on the Jacobite problem as they saw it.

This is one of those roads.
