Footpath appeal nears goal
Bookmark and Share
The appeal for £60,000 to repair a footpath at a Highland beauty spot is nearing its goal.

Established by landowner the John Muir Trust, the Steall Gorge Appeal has now topped £45,000 as the total donated is approaching £38,000, with over £7,300 set to be added as gift aid.

The work is needed as the route through the wooded area is becoming eroded by the myriad of visitors who go walking there.

While it is popular with members of the public in its own right as a short walk from the car park up to the Steal Falls in the meadow above the gorge, the route is also a means walkers can use to access a number of Munros, such as those in the eastern Mamores ridge. 

The route is also useful for those descending from the mountains, such as down the path from the Aonach Mor / Aonach Beag ridge, one of the few walks in Scotland that include two peaks over 4,000 ft in height.
