West Highland Way Project Needs Your Help
The management group want to improve the West Highland Way by replacing the Auch Bridge north of Tyndrum. This will allow another section of the route to be more accessible to a wider range of people who want to enjoy this world class experience. The route will become safer to use particularly in the winter months.
