Winter engineering works to look out for
Mon 15 Dec 2014
This winter there will be major upgrade works being carried out on the canal's towpaths between Fort Augustus and Banavie. This may mean that portaging at Kytra, Cullochy and Aberchalder Bridge will sometimes be within the active work zone, and for safety paddlers should follow any instructions from the onsite engineers.
Bear Scotland will also be carrying out works on some of the canal swing bridges between 10th January and 22nd March 2015 - again paddlers are asked to take care when approaching the bridges, stay in contact with the engineers, and follow their instructions about whether it is safe or not to pass under the bridges.
