Volunteers to clean up Lochaber glen after the summer

Glencoe
Glencoe

Glencoe in Lochaber is one of Scotland’s most beautiful glens and a magnet for tourists.

Every summer, its beautiful views attract hundreds of thousands of visitors looking to bag Munros, take pictures or just enjoy the atmosphere of a place, which is known for its outstanding natural and cultural heritage.

But they do not always take their litter home with them when they leave.

And National Trust for Scotland conservation volunteers, staff from the trust’s Glencoe team and members of the local community will be out in force to tackle the rubbish alongside the A82 Fort William to Glasgow road in the glen on Saturday September 24.

Property manager Scott McCombie said: “Caring for Glencoe is a big job and we are very grateful to the trust’s conservation volunteers and those in the local community who are helping us tidy up the glen after a busy summer.

“Bear Scotland is helping us with traffic control and Highland Council is providing equipment to help us too.”

He added that more volunteers would be very welcome and there would be a barbecue afterwards for everyone involved.

Anyone interested in taking part in the litter pick can contact Mr McCombie on 01855 811307.
