Shortly before noon on 6 July 2005, an impromptu sit-down on the A9 brought traffic to a halt for 30 minutes, delaying a Japanese delegation member.

Some of the blockade participants were very unhappy with police attempts to interfere with travel to the legal demonstration in Auchterarder this afternoon. That demo did eventually go ahead, but the attempt to stop buses en route to Auchterarder backfired in this instance as the people got off their bus and blockaded the road until police allowed their bus to proceed.
