The words ‘Rest and Be Thankful’ were inscribed on a rock placed hereby soldiers along the original military road on this route around 1750. The original rock fell apart and was replaced with a commemorative stone. You’ll come across this pass by following the A83 west from Tarbet, a town on the western edge of Loch Lomond.
