Tyndrum to Connel - "Path to the Isles"
On going Feasibility Study for 58km of trail suitable for walkers and mountain bike users. This project is being undertaken as a joint venture between the company and Pick Everard. The key objectives for the path are :-
Providing for shared use by a wide range of users including walkers, cyclists and horse riders of all abilities and ages where possible.
Not to adversely affect the land management or other interests of the relevant landowners/managers/tenants
Consider in terms of the environmental impacts so it can be constructed in a way that makes a minimal impact on the landscape, environment and disturbance to wildlife in the area and avoids urbanising the landscape corridor through which it runs.
The design will take into consideration the special landscape qualities of the existing routes in terms of their naturalness and the experience they offer.
The path should pass close to or through communities.
Provide links to the existing public transportation network in particular railway stations and bus stops.
