Tilhill UPM forestry have kindly updated us with the following information
For your info we have commenced harvesting operations at Carn na Leirg. The felling coup runs parallel to the road starting at the forest gate up to just past the right hand turn.
The operators have been instructed to keep the road open at all times and not to block the access gate. If for some reason they do not then please let me know asap.

A view from the path on the Fair Haired Lad's Pass which the SLNAG has helped to secure the funding for.
SLNAG is currently helping Destination Loch Ness to develop a multi-use route between Loch Tarff and Inverness on the South side of Loch Ness. Work has presently started on the new section of path between Loch Tarff and Knockie and we look forward eagerly to its completion.
This work has now been finished and result is the South Loch Ness Trail. Additions are now being planned to connect between Fort Augustus and Loch Tarff and from the Farigaig forest to Dores.
