AKW Reroute update

We are currently working with prospective funders to raise the cash required to begin Phase I of the project – Cannich to Millness (Sections AK9 through AK5 on the map below).  If all goes well we hope to commence work early in the new year.  AK8 and AK6 (blue) are existing forest tracks.  AK7 (green) is a forest track that has not been maintained for a number of years and is totally overgrown.  This together with AK9 and AK5 (red dashed) are new build sections.

The new route apart from substantially improving road safety will also open up the views and lend to much better conditions underfoot for all our visitors  whether on foot, bike or horseback.  We hope to have the project completed by autumn 2021 so please bear with us!

We welcome comments on our plans and these could be included in support of our funding applications.  If you can help please visit our Contact page for details of how to get in touch.
