FCS have advised us that the work to remove fallen trees due to winter gales is taking a bit longer than expected. Although the car par and trails were open over the weekend they are now closed to the public while work continues.
There is a possibilty that the work may continue beyond this week.
Bridge now repaired and operational so normal access to FCS waymarked walks and the Affric Kintail Way fully restored.
Update from FCS regarding both Dog Falls Bridge and Plodda Falls trails:
“The bridge at Dog Falls car park is currently being repaired and access over the bridge will be available from the end of this week.
The work to clear the windblown trees at Plodda is taking longer than expected – the contractors will be working until the end of Friday 3rd of April, then starting up again on Tuesday 7th April until probably Friday 10th April.
So Plodda will be open over the Easter weekend Sat 4th – Mon 6th April inclusive – although parts of the trail are probably damaged, so the sections along to the falls and down to the forest road will be available but the sections within the wood will stay closed – signs will direct users.”
