New Access Path in Murthly gets Funding

Part of the River Tay Way is set for improvements since the boggy ground at the moment is turning walker away.

The path behind the Murthly Sawmill, which connects with the wider River Tay Way, is receiving a boost of £5,000 from the Griffin and Calliachar Community Fund.

Bid Strachan, PKCT Communities Officer, said: “The path condition was brought to our attention by comments from members of the public, and the local community are keen to have a passable way through this unique and history woodland. 

“This 220m stretch of the route length is virtually inaccessible pretty much year-round, so upgrading it, with a “light touch”, will allow more people to have an enjoyable walking and cycling experience, whilst protecting the special qualities of the site.”

Craig Mullen, SSE Renewables Community Investment Manager said: “The Griffin and Calliachar panel were happy to support this project which encourages connection to other paths in the area. It’s also great to see PKCT consulting with and making improvements based on feedback from path users and local people.”

The ambition is to open up the path to visitors of all ages to get out an enjoy the surrounding woodland.
