Everyone is welcome to attend a community drop-in session to see and discuss progress and designs for Rannoch’s Riverside All Abilities Path Project with the project team.

The event will be Thursday, 28 October 2021, between 14.00 and 19.00 at the Village Hall in Kinloch Rannoch.

The project includes increasing the ease of access from the village to the riverside path by upgrading the current path alongside the River Tummel and providing an accessible link down to the river and so to the wider local path network. It will be smoother and wider to accommodate all, including those using cycles and wheelchairs, with improved signage being installed to raise awareness of the upgraded route.

The project team includes Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust (PKCT), volunteers from the Rannoch Paths & Open Spaces Group (RPOSG) and engineers from Cycling Scotland’s Transport Planning & Engineering Limited (TP&E). Together, they’ve worked on landowner and community consultation, feasibility, fund raising and design work for the Riverside Path and link path from the village.

Annie Benson of RPOSG said:

It’s good news to finally be able to welcome everybody to an open event in Rannoch. The project team is looking forward to engaging with the community to talk about what is proposed. The intention is to provide greater accessibility to the village’s much-loved Riverside path.

Bid Strachan, PKCT’s Communities Officer, also commented:

It will be a great opportunity to interact with the local community about this exciting project while adhering to COVID-safe procedures. We have illustrations that can show what the completed path will look like, including an even sealed surface, with gentle gradients, benches, and fencing.

Light refreshments will be available.
