The 'Bailey Bridge', which was laid down in 1965, is finally to be replaced, starting on 31 Oct 16. The work will go on for one week.
During this period access to the lodge will be unavailable.
The bridge is being replaced because the Scottish Forestry Commission need a bridge with a higher weight classification to be in place before they start to fell and recover timber from the surrounding area.
Visitors to the lodge need to be aware that once forestry work starts, there will be an increase in traffic along the track leading to the lodge. Drivers should take extra care and strictly adhere to the posted speed limits.
