Walkers warned of West Highland Way issues after storms
Bookmark and Share
Recent extreme weather in the Scottish Highlands has meant several parts of the West Highland way have been damaged.

Anyone planning to go walking on part or all of the 96-mile route from Milngavie to Fort William have been told some sections require more care than usual, while one part has had a diversion put in place.

The long-distance trail's website has published details of a diversion in place in theGaradhban Forest, which will remain in place for six months while fallen trees are cleared.

Walkers around Beinghlas and Glen Falloch have also been asked to take care as there is more mud and debris in the area than usual, with flash flooding having caused disruption to ongoing path repair work at Derrydarroch.

The West Highland Way was extended by a mile in 2010 from the end of the Glen Nevis Road in Fort William to a new finish in the centre of the town at Gordon Square, featuring a statue of a tired walker sat on a bench.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801420520-ADNFCR
