A path in Glen Nevis has reopened after emergency repairs following a landslip.

The footpath in the Steall Gorge was closed by owners John Muir Trust on Monday after part of it collapsed during heavy rain.

But the route has now been repaired temporarily, meaning the path is now passable.

The landslip happened where the gorge opens out into Steall Meadows, south of Meall Cumhann.

Alison Austin, conservation officer with the JMT, said: “We had contractors on the path on Tuesday and a temporary repair is in place. The path is open and passable, and further repairs will take place in the very near future.

“There should be no more closures but if we need to for the main repair we will announce this in advance.”
