One of the perks of the job is visiting some great spots and my recent visit to Handa Island was definitely one of them. Handa is about 1hr north of Ullapool on the North West coast of Scotland and the scenery at this part of the country is brilliant. On the day I visited it was very popular with visitors who come mainly to see the Puffins.

We have just started work at the junction where the hill path down from Braeriach reaches the Lairig Ghru. Braeriach is having alot of pathwork carried out this year, with 3 different contractors working at the same time. This work is for Cairngorm Outdoor Access Trust, and is trying to redress the damage caused by many years access to this very popular munro. Upland Access has a small but tricky section at the bottom of the hill that seen our guys using their skills and experience to build a stone path up a steep wee slope.
