Start of our summer in the Lairig an Laoigh

In an eventful week for Upland Access Ltd's team we saw our new "home from home" for the summer being delivered by helicopter to the remote site in the Cairngorms. As part of the Cairngorm Mountain Heritage project we will be carrying out work near the Fords of Avon, a very long walk by anyone's standards and so the Remote Accommodation System we are staying in will enable us to carry out the works as efficiently as possible.

Although these systems are really good it is still going to be a challenge as our frozen water pipes gave us an example of that right away.
But we are here to do a job of works and we got down to it straight away working on a section of the ancient drovers route in the Lairig an Laoigh.

This project is for the Cairngorm Outdoor Access Trust and its their innovative accommodation units we  will be using.
