Glen­coe Lochan car park ex­ten­sion com­plete

The Oban Times - - DISTRICTS -

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.’
