Blabheinn Contract Completed.

JMT on the completed Bla Bheinn contract.


Another hard stint has seen our team finish the main contract at Blabheinn on the Isle of Skye. According to the weather people 5000 lightening strikes hit the western isles, - we can testify to that as we were out there!.
But the #weatherbomb passed and we kept on going despite the hard work this year catching up with us. Lead legs and sore arms aside, we passed the finishing line.
So thanks to everyone involved in this contract and also the team throughout the year including Kieran, Alan, Mark, Damian, Ross, Emillio, and Gary.
Good wishes for the festivities and enjoy your drams at the New Year.

Update on Bla Bheinn from the John Muir Trust

What our client John Muir Trust is saying about us!

"Stonework, Drainage and Landscaping... what else?"

How do you fix an erosion scar that is nearly 10m wide in places, is on a steep slope, and has water gushing down it forcing people to avoid it and make even more routes?
You get Upland Access Ltd to fix it!
How do we fix it? With careful selection and identification of the best route through the scar, stonework in the form of naturalized stone pitching and steps, landscaping and blocking to keep people to the defined path, and ditches and drainage to keep the path in good condition.
This particular scenario is what we are trying to achieve on the hill Bla Bheinn for our client John Muir Trust. We are well through the contract and we hope we are achieving the goals set for us.

Dramatic Sky- on Skye!



 Great views have been experienced by our team working on Skye the last couple of months. Everyday is guaranteed to bring something different to the skies as we change from autumn to winter. The work we are carrying out is for the John Muir Trust on the iconic hill Blaven.
