Highland walking bridge re-opens
Bookmark and Share
A wire bridge in the Scottish Highlands has reopened to walkers after it was broken earlier this year.

The Steall Bridge, which crosses the Water of Nevis beneath the Mamores range of mountains, broke in May, blocking access to the Munros of An Gearanach and Stob Coire a' Chairn.

However, repair work by landowner the John Muir Trust has been completed and the narrow wire structure is ready once more for those wearing walking boots to inch their way across.

Head of land management at the trust Andrew Campbell said it was important to get the work completed before the winter comes, when higher rainfall will make it unsafe to cross any other way.

"At the moment it is possible to ford the stream on foot, but this is not ideal for everyone, and won't be a safe option for much longer," he noted.

In addition to An Gearanach and Stob Coire a' Chairn, Munro baggers visiting the Mamores can also climb Binnein Mor, Binnein Beag, Na Grugaichean, Sgurr Eilde Mor, Sgurr a' Mhaim, Stob Ban and Mullach nan Coirean.
