THE DAYS OF THE DROVE ROADS

It is unfortunate that in times of escalating oil prices, remote areas such as Argyll bear the heaviest burden of transport costs. Agriculture, the main industry of this area, pays dearly to import essential raw materials from distant industrial centres, and again faces large costs when farm produce makes its way to the city markets. However, despite present difficulties, the farmer’s task in marketing stock is easier than in the past, when cattle were driven to market along the drove roads.
