A new community project – involving local people, schools and businesses, too – is being initiated to explore and explain the heritage of our village and promote use of footpaths and cycle paths in the area – one day possibly linking the Glen with the West Highland Way and beyond. The Trail will lead residents or visitors through the village, past intriguing sites and finishing with coffee and cake, or a glass of something stronger, in one of our local hostelries!

The project plans are:

Phase 1) excavate the building in the Glen, under expert supervision, hopefully next year.

Phase 2) design and produce interpretation boards at sites around the village together with an app providing further historical information.

Phase 3) promote use of the paths network and encourage trade for local businesses.

Phase 4) improve local trails and develop a new route down to the West Highland Way.
