 Further work took place yesterday (Friday 20 October) to restore the Scorrybreac path to an area of safety.

The rope access team started work to dislodge a large area of rock above the path.  The rock has been left in a precarious position since the recent rock slide.

The three man rope access team have been working in the area since Tuesday 10 October.  Their work will include heavy scaling of all the large unstable rocks using hydraulic jacks, and cutting away the overhanging turf above the rock failure.

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

It is hoped that the path will reopen shortly after the work is completed.
