Phase 2 Work Underway

After some unavoidable delays work has commenced on Phase 2. Initially our contractor Hitrak Ltd will deal with a very ‘wet’ section requiring a deep base. This is being installed using recyled stone from old walls within the croft.

Phase 2 starts May

Five companies were invited to tender for Phase 2 resulting in the contract being awarded again to Hitrak Ltd. It is anticipated work will commence before the end of May with a 12-14 week timescale.

Sections in blue AK6-AK9 are complete with a temporary access to/from A831 at P1. Phase 2 will be tackled in two parts – AK5 through Dark Deer Croft to reach the A831 at P2 where we will again put in temporary signage whilst the remaining sections north of the A831 i.e. AK1-AK4 are built.

We will update as the work goes on but we would ask that you keep clear of the works until advised it is safe to follow the new sections.

Snowman Rally 2022

The Snowman Rally takes place on Saturday 5th March 2022. The rally course includes the forestry roads between Drumnadrochit and Corrimony that are part of the AKW. This part of the AKW will be closed all day on the above date with warning signs in place.

It is also anticipated that the A831 between Drumnadrochit and Cannich will be much busier than usual given the interest in the event and the large number of spectators expected.

We therefore suggest that the entire section between Drumnadrochit and Cannich should be avoided on the day of the rally.

The rally organisers will be setting up the previous weekend and clearing up on Sunday the 6th. These activities will not affect safe access to the AKW and the route will be fully open.

In the interests of safety for all concerned please heed the above information and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We will post any updates as we receive them.
