Sgurr an Fhuarain – accessed from Loch Arkaig

Fuller details have now been released about the repair works to the Loch Arkaig road and access for hillwalkers will not be as badly affected as previously reported.

Repairs to the road along the north side of Loch Arkaig will start on 4 February and run until April and access will be maintained for all during this time although there may be short delays (the contractor estimates about 20 minutes) at specific work locations.

Bridgeworks are planned to start in the week beginning 4th March and during this time the road will be closed for periods of a few days at a time. The Contractor will endeavour to maintain access for as many of the bridge construction days as possible and a mini bus/taxi service will probably be available at certain points during the day If you know when you may want to travel along these roads between 4 March and late April/early May you are advised to phone the contractor’s office number (since mobile reception is very limited along Loch Arkaig) on 01397 702 834. Updates will be posted here if the dates and arrangements change.
