Rainy Week at the Dubh Loch Path

Our current season at the heights of the Cairngorms are drawing to a close as the nights draw in and we have left the summit of Lochnagar to work at the path leading to the Dubh Loch in Balmoral Estate , Deeside. This work is for our client Cairngorms Outdoor Access Trust as part of their Mountains and People project - a project taking place in the upland areas of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and the Cairngorms National Park.

October Winds!

Working at 3000 plus feet in the Scottish highlands are challenging at the best of times but throw in the odd gales and it fairly separates the men from the boys. Upland Access' teams are continuing our work at the plateau of Lochnagar and also single line definition at its smaller sister Meikle Pap. We also have another contract at Balmoral estate, again carrying out repairs to the path that leads to the Dubh Loch from Loch Muick. The weather has been good but there is a real nip to the wind, a timely reminder that things are going to get right cold right fast!
