Improving Access on Islay

Picture of a rotting old bridge over a burn

When you're going hillwalking in the north-east of Islay you have a hurdle to overcome almost immediately after leaving from Bunnahabhain, which is Margadale River. This is a fairly large burn, not easily waded through. Hence a bridge would be a distinct advantage. Until fairly recently the bridge looked like the one in the picture on the right. This has now changed:

Last week I mentioned the new Islay Community Access Group website. Since then the Work in Progress page has been updated. It holds many fine examples of improvements for access to Islay's beautiful countryside. This includes a new bridge over Margadale River (scroll to Bunnahabhain - Rubha a’ Mhail and check out the pictures), but also other improvements like the new car park at Bridgend Woods.

A lot of great work being done here with limited funds! Thank you!
