Gaelic road signs should be scrapped

Sir,

On a recent trip up to the West Coast, we came upon a van on the A82, south of Crianlarich, which had lost a front wheel, in a rather large pothole in the road, and had come to a halt nose down in the verge.

The driver was unhurt and was waiting beside the road for the recovery company. Later in the afternoon, on the A85, we hit a similar sized pothole which dislodged pipes under our campervan, spraying a tank full of diesel all over the road, and bringing us to a halt near Benderloch.

We also had a wait by the roadside for the recovery man and, unable to reach our caravan site that night, had to slowly make our way back to North Ledaig Caravan Park.

During our week’s holiday, we did a bit of driving around between Crianlarich, Oban, Fort William and so on, and could not help noticing the dual language road signs.
