Mountaineers and hill walkers are being asked to donate to an appeal which would restore damage caused to a Perthshire Munro.
The first target of the appeal is one of Scotland’s most heavily-eroded mountain paths, a highly visible scar up the slopes of Beinn a’ Ghlo, the great three-Munro massif in the south of the Cairngorms National Park.
The campaign aims to raise £60,000 for this project, which will sustainably and sensitively restore the route up Carn Liath, which is currently so wide it is visible from several kilometres away on the A9 north of Blair Atholl.
Mountaineering Scotland and the Outdoor Access Trust for Scotland (OATS) are leading the campaign which also hopes to raise £40,000 to carry out urgent path repair work on the popular Arrochar Alps peak, Ben Vane, in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
David Gibson, Mountaineering Scotland CEO said: “By making a donation, however small, this is a real opportunity for everyone who values Scotland’s mountains to make a difference to the quality of the mountain experience on two much-loved Munros.
“OATS works to the highest standards and you can be assured that your money will be well-spent supporting this appeal.”
