Tonnes of rub­bish cleared off Glen­coe

MORE than 20 tonnes of rub­bish and me­tal has been cleared from the hills of Glen­coe.

Thirty-six bags of old steel from tows, lift ca­bles, elec­tri­cal wire and rot­ten tim­ber were air­lifted from Meall a Bhuiridh as part of a mas­sive clean up by Glen­coe Moun­tain Re­sort, ski clubs and vol­un­teers.

The junk had built up as a re­sult of storm dam­age dur­ing the 60 years of the moun­tain re­sort’s op­er­a­tion but couldn’t be re­moved with­out a he­li­copter.

Andy Mel­drum, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of the re­sort, said: ‘It’s bril­liant that we have been able to make a start on en­sur­ing that the sim­ply stun­ning Glen­coe land­scape is a lit­tle cleaner to­day than it was be­fore. There is still lots of work to do, but rest as­sured that this is only the start and we will be do­ing our ut­most over the com­ing years to con­tinue this process. A mas­sive thanks to ev­ery­one who con­trib­uted.’
