Local business Cannich Stores launched their Affric Trail malt whisky a few years ago. Given the link with the Affric Kintail Way the owners are now making a donation to support the AKW each time they sell a bottle of Affric Trail whisky or an item of associated merchandise. This is very welcome news in that even while construction work is underway we have to look to the future and how we pay for the ongoing maintenance of the route.
Hopefully our visitors will support a business that is supporting the AKW!
Work is progressing on new sections of the reoute. Base layers on two of the new build sections hopefully completed in next couple of weeks. Fingers crossed for a mild winter!
Forestry operations will commence this week near the car park at Balnain in proximity to the AKW so please expect vehicle movements in the area. Please follow any signage or instructions from contractors or FLS personnel. Warning signs will be in place and dog walkers are asked to avoid the area. The map below shows the felling area in yellow with the AKW in blue dots.
