News and Information Updates on the Affric Kintail Way

Timber Operations

Tree felling operations have begun near the dam at Loch Beinn a’ Mheadain. Although the area concerned is not on the Affric Kintail Way itself some timber lorries will be using part of the route from Cannich Village to the Dog Falls turn off (Stage 2).

We are awaiting clarification from FCS re how much activity to expect and also what warning information FCS have/will have in place.

This issue will not affect access to the AKW and we will update when we have more information.

The area concerned is shown on the attached map.

In the meantime please be aware of the situation and obey any warning signs or instructions from contractors.
