Glenborrodale Accident

Many thanks to Geoffrey Campbell for this photo of the accident which occurred late yesterday afternoon on the Glenborrodale side of Dale Cottage.

Geoffrey reports, "The ambulance was heading to Kilchoan to attend an emergency and met a car on the bridge. Fortunately no one was injured but the Mini was shunted backwards through the bridge wall and the ambulance ended up balanced on the other wall in an 'Italian Job' pose.

"Emergency services soon attended including two fire engines, another ambulance and the police; only the coastguard was missing. All was put right with assistance from the Loch Shiel Garage and Ardnamurchan Estate."

With the road blocked for over two hours, the NHS switched rapidly to Plan B - a medivac helicopter appearing over Kilchoan soon afterwards to deal with the original emergency.


  1. Hope all is well with the casualty, well done to our NHS who continue to support remote communities. I understand the coast guard and emergency responders were in attendance to assist the medivac helicopter.

  2. We wondered what was happening, we're staying in Salen and saw all the emergency vehicles racing past, we thought there was an major incident, thank goodness everyone is ok
