MSPs celebrate Steall success
Bookmark and Share
The John Muir Trust has achieved its fundraising goal as it seeks to reopair the Steall Gorge footpath - and a number of parliamentarians in Edinburgh are celebrating the fact.

A group of 25 MSPs signed a motion at Holyrood congratulating the trust on reaching its £60,000 target, as well as praising the work of other not-for-profit organisations involved in repairing and maintaining footpaths.

The motion was proposed by SNP member Jean Urquhart and attracted signatures from members of her own party, as well as a number of Labour and Conservative members.

Now the money has been raised, those who like to go walking up the gorge can go on enjoying its dramatic scenery and use it to access the high meadow beyond, where Scotland's second highest waterfall, An Steall Ban, cascades from the lower slopes of Stob Coire a' Chairn.

The route can be used by Munroists to access this and other peaks of the eastern Mamores ridge, such as Sgurr Eilde Mor, An Gearanach and Na Gruagaichean, while the other side of the meadow offers a path from the ruins of Steall up Aonach Beag.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801450915-ADNFCR
