Update: water sources in Glen Tilt and Gleann Mor

We have be informed that raw sewage is released into the Allt Feith Lair from Fealar lodge at NO 009 799. Therefore, anyone taking drinking water from this stream, or downstream in Glen Tilt should take appropriate precautions such as boiling or treating water. In Gleann Mor water can be collected upstream from above Fealar lodge, or from the Allt a' Ghlinne Bhig at NO 009 784 south of the lodge.

Update: Moulzie bridge, Glen Clova

The Moulzie bridge (NO 277 789) was washed away in the floods last winter. An expedition in the area reports that there is no replacement, although during lower water levels fording the river near the bridge site is possible. A sign at the bridge directs walkers to follow the west bank of the river. There is a track down the west bank to the ford north of Moulzie at NO 280 780, and a footbridge over the river and path south of here from NO 281 773 down to the carpark.

Update: Squinty bridge, Gaick pass

A leader has reported that on the Squinty bridge (NN 713 772) on Edendon water, just south of Sronphadruig lodge, the culverts underneath have become completely blocked. This means that all water is running across the top of the bridge. In dry conditions this was reported as 8 inches deep, but it could be a significant hazard in wetter conditions.

Update: River Esk bridge closure

The footbridge crossing the River North Esk at NO 492 790 has been closed as it is unsafe. There are no plans to repair or replace it. Please be aware of this when planning routes in the area.

Campsites update

 

Groups planning to visit the area need to be aware of the following restrictions:

  • Loch Ordie – due north of Dunkeld – All DofE groups are requested not to camp in the immediate vicinity of the Loch. Alternative campsites have been identified north of Loch Ordie and groups are requested to use these instead of the shoreline of the loch.
  • Glen Prosen. Renovation work has been done at Kilbo Bothy (NO 249 708) and it is now frequently used. All groups are requested to not camp in this area.

Further information on both of these locations can be obtained from the Area Advisor.
