SSE’s Griffin and Calliachar Community Fund has provided a grant of £14,640 towards the upgrading of the paths around Aberfeldy. Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust (PKCT), in partnership with the Upper Tay Paths Group, will work together to deliver the path improvements. 

Work includes: repairs to Camserney Pond, which is currently leaking and flooding the Dull-Camserney path, and associated drainage works; at Carse Farm flood bank repairs to the path & replacement of fencing that is flood damaged; and surface and drainage repairs to the old railway line path between Grandtully and Aberfeldy.

Andrew Barrie, PKCT Strategic Routes Officer said “This grant is a great opportunity to improve paths that are affected by flooding. We’re delighted to receive the funding and look forward to working with the Upper Tay Paths Group to help keep the paths in good order for the future.”

Martin Hill, Acting Chairman of the Upper Tay Paths Group said ‘These improvements will make a big difference to the area as the paths provide important links between local communities and allow residents and visitors to travel between villages and enjoy the countryside.”

The work will start in the next month and will be completed early in the new year.
