Quick sortie to Jocks Road




A quick blast at Jocks Rd for this year- both our teams had a stint each carrying out repairs and construction of drainage and stone work. It was good to see last years work bedding in and providing another couple of hundred metres of defined path that is going to make a real difference. Jocks Road is a historic Drovers route that joins Glen Doll to Glen Callater enabling some walkers to walk from Glen Clova nr Kirriemuir to Braemar. It also provides access to a few munros too. This work is part of the The Mountains and The People project - a joint national park upland path repair initiative managed by our client Cairngorms Outdoor Access Trust . 

The weather last week? -mixed bag with amazing blue skies one second and gloomy clouds of midgies the next. Cant complain - when the midge bites are many on yer face it looks from a distance like a good tan. Those are the breaks!
Next job- Lochnagar Plateau.

Done and Dusted at the Cobbler

We passed the finishing line of this years' work at the Cobbler and the stone constructed path  has been receiving great feedback from regular users of this very busy path in Loch Lomond  and Trossachs National Park. Over two hundred tonnes of stone and material were moved by hand in the works which included drainage and landscaping. This project was for our client Cairngorms Outdoor Access Trust.
