Coastal walk findings to be unveiled


The findings of a major study into the future of the Fisherman’s Walk will be made public next week.

A six-week study into coastal erosion and the rise in the sea-level has been carried out by Glasgow-based environmen­tal consultanc­y Envirocent­re at the popular mile-long Brodick path.

They were brought in by the Arran Access Trust, which received funding from NatureScot to study the long-term future of the path.

While much work has been done over the years to stabilise the coastline, including the recent works on the banks of the Cloy Burn, this study is an opportunit­y to consider its future. The study has provided maps forecastin­g the likely changes to the coastline over 10, 50 and 200-year periods which will be used to design potential interventi­on opportunit­ies.

An extensive report has been compiled which the consultant­s will discuss on a Zoom meeting on Monday March 29 at 7pm. See advert for details.
