Glencharnoch’s paths get some tlc
804 metres of path have been re-surfaced at our stunning Caledonian pinewood site at Carrbridge. This has all been set up and overseen by Ross Watson, our Site Manager for the north of Scotland.
The 1.5 metre wide paths are surfaced with Geotex 90, a weed suppressant liner covered with 100mm type 1 base, with a 25mm dust capping, and with landscaped edges using on-site turf.
The new path surfacing is for all abilities (1.5m wide) but has a couple of slightly steep sections that might prove a bit tricky for non-motorised wheelchairs.
The Glencharnoch pathworks are part of a programme of upgrades at our northern sites, including at Abriachan, on the shores of Loch Ness, where the narrow, steep and slippery paths have been upgraded by hand using stone from the site.
