GLEN AFFRIC ROAD CLOSURE
Saturday 7th May 2016 9am-3pm
The road through Glen Affric will be closed to public traffic at the above times between Chisholm Bridge and River Affric Car Park (approx. 1 mile) in order to ensure the safety of those involved with the duathlon.
The only vehicles permitted beyond Chisholm Bridge will be those carrying competitors, support personnel and emergency services. The organisers apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Highland Cross has been granted preliminary permission to stage next year’s event in Glen Affric on Saturday 18th June 2016 by both the National Trust for Scotland and The Forestry Commission. This will be the 34th staging of the event.
The route applied for once again starts at Morvich and follows the same route as the Affric Kintail Way until the end of Loch Affric where our participants will cross to the North of the river to Affric Quarry.
It is hoped that there will be approximately 750 participants taking part and raising funds for Highland Social and Medical charities. With the funds gathered in 2015 Highland Cross will have contributed over £4m to Highland charities since it inception – a wonderful testament to the power of the Highland Community.

One of our visitors to Glen Affric found this cute teddy bear in the car park at Loch Beinn a’ Mheadhain on Tuesday (27th). Hopefully the owner will get in touch and we can arrange to have them re-united.
