Help to clean-up moun­tain plea

The Oban Times - - News -

CLIMBERS, out­door en­thu­si­asts and engi­neers are be­ing sought for a ma­jor moun­tain clean-up on Ran­noch Moor.

Old fenc­ing, rust­ing steel and ca­bles are to be re­moved from Meall a’ Brhuiridh this week­end and or­gan­is­ers, Glen­coe moun­tain re­sort, are look­ing for as many peo­ple to help as pos­si­ble on both Satur­day and Sun­day.

Any­one fit enough to walk up and down the steep slopes can vol­un­teer, but engi­neers are re­quired to cut large pieces of ca­ble and ex­pe­ri­enced climbers can help by ac­cess­ing the steep ravines and gul­lies.

The junk will be col­lected in he­li­copter bags to be air­lifted from the moun­tain later in the week. All vol­un­teers will meet at the moun­tain re­sort’s base cafe at 9am on both days to be sorted into teams. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Andy Mel­drum on 07977553901.
