Motion: Steall Gorge Footpath Appeal

Steall Gorge Footpath Appeal
That the Parliament congratulates the John Muir Trust on the success of its Steal Gorge Footpath appeal, which has raised tens of thousands of pounds in order to repair the historic footpath across Glen Nevis; understands that the path is an important tourist attraction that is walked by tens of thousands of visitors every year to enable them to view the dramatic An Steall Ban, Britain’s second highest waterfall; recognises the importance of footpath maintenance, which aids public access to mountain landscapes and protects surrounding habitats from damage, and commends the work of all not-for-profit organisations involved in carrying out what it considers to be the vital repair and restoration of Scotland’s upland footpaths.
