The National Trust for Scotland has been aasked when the path would be opened again.
Sadly it’s going to be a while as the engineers need to assess and our little path to the Castle isn’t high on the priority list! One point she made was that people are still using the path and it’s a risk with potential dangers. One of the wooden bridges more seriously affected by the storm last year has had some significant movement, 3-4cm subsidence. There is a risk that it could shift and collapse if people continue walking across it! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
