Safe walking from Broadford into natural beauty area

This project was significant in that it was the first phase of a larger aim to establish a path network around Broadford and Strath.  This stage was to provide the first 1.7km of a safe walking route between Broadford and Kilchrist, a total distance of 4.42km, utilising the track-bed of a former quarry railway.

This project served the needs of the resident community, providing a safe walking option from Broadford into an area of great natural beauty. In addition, it would be very attractive to the many holiday visitors to the area, linking in with the newly established and high-specification walking route from Kilchrist through to the cleared settlements at Boreraig and Suishnish and on to Torrin itself.

In addition, at the time, we were keen to extend the usefulness of this route (and the scope for future interpretation) by creating a link to, and upgrading an existing route, to the nearby settlement of Old Corry.  This created a circular walking route from the village. We also had constructed, a new foot bridge to replace the seriously dilapidated structure, long in need of replacement.
