Chance to get involved in mapping the way for Stratherrick and Foyers

 

Foyers woodThe Highland Council is to ask people living in and around Stratherrick and Foyers for directions to the future of outdoor access in their local community.  

Describing their favourite routes and how they could be improved will be key questions for anyone attending two community drop-in sessions either side of Guy Fawkes Night.  

The Highland Council’s Access Officer for Inverness and Nairn, Stewart Eastaugh said:  “This is an area rich in opportunities for getting out of doors. Both the Great Glen Canoe Trail and the South Loch Ness Trail are gaining in popularity. The extension of the Caledonian Way will raise Stratherrick’s profile for cyclists from around the world while horse-riders are getting the benefit from the Trail of the 7 Lochs. It is a good time to find out what the community thinks about improving old paths, building new ones or promoting all the opportunities there are to get outside and enjoy a wide range of activities.”  

The two drop-in sessions will take place at Stratherrick Public Hall in Gorthleck on Tuesday 4 November from 3pm-7.30pm and the Waterfall Café in Foyers on Thursday 6 November, also between 3pm and 7.30pm.

Stewart added: “Anyone with an interest in the outdoors will be welcome to come along. Their feedback will form the basis of a report available to anyone planning local outdoor access projects.”
