Schiehallion path set to attract disabled
Bookmark and Share
A Scottish mountain path has gained a listing on a disability leisure website for its wheelchair-friendliness. 

The John Muir Trust (JMT), which manages paths up Schiehallion, has noted the eastern path from the Braes of Foss car park has been included in the Photorails website, which is aimed at those with disabilities who like to experience the outdoors.

It is the first path up a Munros to appear on the site and the first 1,032 metres of the path from the car park is suitable for those with wheelchairs.

The 2,403 ft of path that follow will need to be tackled on foot and it will be up to individuals to assess for themselves if they can manage it or not.

Members of the JMT set about creating the path from Braes of Foss in 2003 as a replacement for the badly-eroded path on that side of the mountain.

Volunteers for the charity recently carried out work on Scheihallion's paths, as well as those up to Quinag's three Corbetts and around Sandwood Bay.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801453638-ADNFCR
