We’ve added two boardwalk bridges on the moorland pathway on Stage 4 of Bute’s ‘West Island Way’ (above Shalunt Farm). The footbridges will make it easier for walkers to cross the small burns that drain water from the hillside. This high final section of the Way is well worth the effort as it leads to fine views over Kames Bay, Port Bannatyne and the Firth of Clyde.
We have completed resurfacing of the popular path from the small car park down to the beach at Scalpsie Bay. This will ensure that it remains accessible to people with limited mobility and wheelchair users. (Picture: Billy Shields)
Our volunteers need a wide range of hand and powered tools to keep our pathways safe and pleasant for walkers. We’ve organised our tool store to ensure easy access to the right tools for any job. (Picture by Billy Shields)
Typical of the problems that crop up on our 30 miles of West island Way. This one will be sorted at once thanks to Jock and Billy who have the expertise to remove the fallen timber. (Picture by Billy Shields)
The old bird hide at the Mount Stuart Estate shore was badly in need of replacement. We have worked with the Estate to provide this brand new hide. (Picture by Billy Shields)
