Stonework at the Junction

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.

True to form, we still have a patch of snow below our site but we haven't decided whether this is making our job easier getting stone to the site, or more difficult. Time will tell when the stone melts!
