The Long Walk

This week finds the Upland Access team in Mar Lodge Estate carrying out vital path maintenance work as part of the Cairngorm Upland Maintenance program. Mar Lodge Estate near Braemar is owned and managed by the National Trust for Scotland, and encompasses some of the most majestic mountain scenery in the UK and also most of the highest mountains as well.
To get to the mountain paths that need maintained is a challenge in itself with Long Walks the order of the day.

The Cairngorm Upland Maintenance Program was set up 5 years ago by Cairngorms Outdoor Acces Trust (COAT) and also maintains paths in Deeside and  on Cairngorm Mountain.
