Highland bridge open again

Those who like to go walking in the Scottish Highlands can enjoy easier access again to a location near Fort William, after a bridge was re-opened.

Work on the bridge over the river Spean at Inverlair has progressed enough to allow traffic back, which will enable walkers with cars to be able to drive on to Fersit and park, Grough reports.

However, some further work is going on and the authority's senior engineer Ian Douglas said motorists may experience occasional delays.

Those heading to the area in walking boots can now enjoy easier access to four Munros - Chno Dearg, Stob Coire Sgriodain, Stob a' Choire Mheadhoin and Stob Coire Easain - as a result.

These peaks lie in a part of Scotland containing its highest mountain and a number of mountain ranges, including the Mamores.

Access to that range was restricted by a bridge problem last year when the Steall Bridge - a wire foot crossing over the Waters of Nevis - broke.

It was subsequently repaired and reopened by landowners the John Muir Trust.
