Stone Pitching at the Cobbler

More stonework constructed by our teams as we are close to the finishing line of our most recent contract on the Cobbler, a very popular hill within the boundaries of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. This type of work where you are using large local stone to construct a natural and durable walking surface, is extremely hard, all manual labour,

and our teams have done well in keeping to the tight schedule.
One of the particular problems of this site is the water that cascades down the path- more a river that a path at sometimes. This has meant constructing large stone drainage features and ditches to carry the water away and through the path- very effective so far and we have seen some violent rainfall recently. Our client in this job is Cairngorms Outdoor Access Trust who are managing the Mountains and People project .
