Forestry Commission Scotland is advising all locals and anyone thinking of visiting Schiehallion that access to the main car park is to be severely restricted throughout February.

The main car park, known as Braes of Foss, will only be open at weekends to allow essential engineering works to be carried out.

Hamish Murray, for the Commission in Tayside, said,

“We’re in the process of upgrading the site and will be removing the old toilet block to make way for a new composting toilet unit.

“If all goes well we hope to have things back to normal by the beginning of March but visitors should always check out our website page for Braes of Foss before coming along, just to make sure.”
