Kingussie Community Development Company (KCDC) has won a £9000 SMT grant for work on the Creag Bheag path near the hill’s summit. The path is “the jewel in the crown” of the town’s 20-mile path network, and will soon provide an even finer circular hill walk, with fantastic views across the Spey valley.
The Trust was proud to be a major funder of this project to restore a footbridge over a powerful river, more than 10 km from a road, a gateway to the wild hills of Knoydart and now part of the Cape Wrath Trail!
The last 400 m of the main track up Goatfell are never going to be a stroll, but thanks to path work this year they’ll be safer and more enjoyable. The Trust provided £5,000 towards the project.
The Outdoor Access Trust for Scotland (OATS), supported by a £12000 grant from the Trust, has removed the white scar on Carn Liath of Beinn a Ghlo.
