Voting opens for Steall Gorge bid
Bookmark and Share
The John Muir Trust has urged supporters to cast their online votes in favour of the Steall Gorge project in Glen Nevis as the possible recipient of much needed cash for footpath repairs, so people can continue to go walking there.

Today (March 13th) has seen the opening of the poll that will see the winner gain £25,000 from the European Outdoor Conservation Association and the Steall bid is the only one from the UK.

Money is needed by the Trust - which owns the land - to repair the crumbling footpath through the wooded gorge to the meadow containing An Steall Ban (the White Spout), Britain's second highest waterfall.

Voting takes place until March 27th and the project has been backed by outdoors writer Cameron McNeish, who said: "Steall Gorge is a fantastic route into a stunning area of wild land - the sort of path that everyone should travel along at least once in their lives."

The path is part of the famous Ring of Steall route, which includes four Munros.

Walkers can also climb the path on other side of the valley to Aonach Mor and Aonach Beag, both Munros over 4,000ft high.
