The Trust helped out at the Rothesay Gala Day. Pictured are Donald Kinnear and Billy Shields with pop-up stands about our work and the West Island Way. Plus a kids’ Picture Quiz sheet.
A cow escaped from a field and decided to try out the West Island Way path through Suidhe Wood at Kilchattan Bay. A stretch of boardwalk was badly damaged. Pictured here are some of the Conservation Volunteers team braving the rain to fix the damage. (Picture by Billy Shields)

Two occasionally very muddy sections on the path between Kilchattan Bay and Glencallum Bay have been completely upgraded on a solid foundation. This will make this favourite walk more pleasant for local residents and for walkers on Bute’s ‘West Island Way’.
An occasionally very muddy section of the ‘West Island Way’ (on Stage 3, around the Westlands and Gortans stretches) has been given a long-lasting fix by clearing and deepening ditches. The picture shows a stretch of the repaired section, now ready to green up over the summer. (Picture: Don Williams)
