Glencoe Lochan car park extension complete
GLENCOE Lochan car park has been expanded and improved in a £21,000 revamp.
Providing access to popular walking tracks, including the Lochan trail, the car park is just a few minutes’ stroll from Glencoe village.
Glencoe Heritage Trust alerted its followers on Facebook that the work, led by Forest Enterprise Scotland (FES) on behalf of Forestry Commission Scotland, had been finished just before the Easter holidays.
An FES spokesperson said: ‘Glencoe Lochan is one of the most popular sites we manage. Visitor numbers have been increasing steadily but many visitors said they did not visit in peak times because it was difficult to park. We are committed to doing what we can to improve the site.
‘To try to accommodate all visitor traffic, we expanded the car park. We also carried out resurfacing and repaired the stone wall. The work, carried out by local Lochaber contractors, was completed in five weeks.’
