On October 10 work will begin at Scorrybreac to make the area safe again, it has been announced on the The Nicolsons of Scorrybreac Facebook page.

A three man rope access team will be working on the area for 7-10 days.

They will start with heavy scaling of all the large unstable rocks using hydraulic jacks, and then cut away the overhanging turf that’s above the rock failure.

This will be followed by light scaling of all loose material within the area.

"During this period of work we would ask all members of the public to stay clear as the area will be extremely dangerous.

"We would hope the path will reopen shortly after the work is completed," they say
