Breathtaking view!
Oct 2020 • Friends
We had a very nice break here during our road trip. The view is beautiful, it will take your breath away! Usually there is a cafe van, so perfect place to stop here on the A83.

Picturesque place
Nov 2019
Beautiful lookout nestled high up on the A3. A great view point. This is a really beautiful place to see. A place to truly rest and be thankful. A great place to sit and reflect, away from bust city life. Plenty of parking spaces and several picnic benches to sit and take in the views. View is breathtaking, amazing in any weather. It's a must see.

Beautiful scenery
Sep 2020
What a beautiful area in Scotland.
We did not realise that this area is prone to landslips and fortunately, the one that happened when we were there had been cleared, else the diversion would have added much time to our journey.
The area is stunning and well worth visiting.

When I added this to my list, I hadn’t realised that our route would take us through this beauty spot. And we had plenty of time to rest and be thankful due to the very very long one way convoy in operation due to the A83 closure.

View.
Sep 2020 • Couples
Great views from the car parking spot. Road works on the road when we went, so could be a delay at busy times.
Would imagine the view would be even more stunning in the snow.
Good brew at the burger van which also does usual cooked food.

Wonderful natural scenery
Aug 2020 • Couples
This was our first visit to the Rest and be Thankful on our drive to Inveraray, Lochgilphead and the Crinnan Canal. Unfortunately we went at a time when there was a land slip, however they had opened the Old Military Road which runs parallel with the main road and thankfully we didn’t miss out. Wonderful scenery and a great viewpoint at the top. Get your camera out, you won’t be disappointed

Love visiting here
Mar 2020 • Friends
True to it's name! Love stopping here the scenery is always beautiful no matter the weather, love to capture the beauty with photography.
The burger van is great for a light bite and a hot drink.

Could do with some bins, would stop people leaving rubbish as the burger van only had a tiny bucket for rubbish

5 Minutes or 50... A Must Stop
Mar 2020 • Couples
The view is incredible. Also take time to read the historical insight plaque on the area and how it got its name. Equally if you have a few minutes, wander down the road and see the memorials on the rock face... very poignant and touching.
