Tom Baraidh – path maintenance update

We had a 20 ton “drop” of Type 1 aggregate delivered to Tom Baraidh and the team have been hard at work improving the paths that surround Harry Grant’s Bench that overlooks the golf course. This section rarely gets the sun and generally suffers from very muddy ground – resulting in paths getting wider and […]

New bench located on the Creag Bheag path

On Friday we located a new (well, a refurbished one really…) bench at the junction of the Creag Bheag, Golf Course Circular and Newtonmore paths.

Initially the existing surface vegetation layer is removed and replaced with a layer of “Type 1” aggregate. This is compressed with a “wacker […]
