Nevis steall detail

Work to remove or stabilise debris, following a significant rock fall on 13-14 September affecting the Steall Gorge footpath, has now been completed. The John Muir Trust will re-open the path on Saturday 29 October.

While safety work above the path has been finished, work to repair the path itself will continue for several weeks. Anyone visiting should be prepared for short delays if the path team are moving or positioning rocks.

Alison Austin, Nevis Land Manager at the John Muir Trust said. “A team from local specialists Stonescape will now spend a few weeks making repairs to the path itself. We’re able to open the path again but ask anyone using it to follow all safety instructions and advice given by the team on the ground.”

The Trust has been able to speedily complete the repair works to the path and surrounding area, estimated to be in the region of £30,000,  thanks to the generosity of its supporters and members. Anyone wishing to donate to its Wild Ways Path Appeal can do so here.
