A wooden walkway forms the eastern approach to the Bedford Memorial Bridge. In 2020, we received reports that the stonework supporting the walkway was being eroded. There was a risk that a future flood could sweep the walkway away, leaving the path impassable.
ScotWays has worked with the landowner, Atholl Estates, to undertake preventative repairs. Over the summer 2023, stone and cement were helicoptered to the remote site and estate staff rebuilt the retaining wall below the walkway, hopefully securing it for years to come. ScotWays contributed £4,000 towards these repairs from the Donald Bennet Memorial Fund.
