Lee Carr, 43, of Kenmore Cottages, Bonawe, was fined £80 when he appeared before Oban Sheriff Court on Tuesday and admitted possessing cannabis.
Sheriff Patrick Hughes was told that officers spoke to Carr and another person in a car on August 2 on the A85 near Pennyfuir Cemetery.
When officers talked to them there was a strong smell of cannabis within the vehicle.
The officers, who were in an unmarked car, had seen the two approach a vehicle beforehand which they knew belonged to someone known to be involved with drugs.
Lee, a first-time offender, cooperated fully with the police and the amount in his possession was less than two grams.
