Our AGM of the South Loch Ness Access Group will be held in Dores Village Hall at 7.30 on Tuesday, 12th January. We have quite a few exciting projects to discuss so I hope that as many folk as possible will be able to make it.
Tea, coffee and biscuits.
Forestry work is presently being carried out in the Leiterchullin Woodland between Loch Ruthven and Loch Duntelchaig, and will be ongoing for about 6 weeks. Whilst the road will remain open, there will be a considerable number of large vehicles on the road so please take care.
Man V Horse 2015
We are taking entries now for this year's Man V Horse Competition on Sunday 19th April. This year we have an online system which will make life a lot easier for everyone. Sign up soon as the number of entries are limited and because of being featured on "Landward" last time we expect demand to exceed supply! This year's chosen charity is Help for Heroes who will received 50% of our profits from the event and the rest will stay with this group to carry on our good works.
The gate into the Glenfarigaig Wood from Dirichurachan meadow has been replaced with an "all singing/dancing" Centre Wire bridleway gate in a joint venture between Tilhill Economic and the Highland Council. We were the liaison for this project. There are new forest roads planned for this area too which will open up the woods for access once the harvesting has been completed.
Happy New Year to all - Heads up on our AGM for 2015, which will take place in the Dores Village Hall on Tuesday 13th January at 8 pm. Refreshments served.
