A path connecting Dunbeg Primary School with the housing in the Lorn Road area of the village is about to get off the ground following the confirmation of relevant permissions and funding streams.

The new path is being jointly funded by Argyll and Bute Council, Sustrans and the LEADER European fund. It has also been supported by Dunstaffnage Estate and West Highland Housing Association.

The 200m route will include a timber bridge over a stream and will be suitable for bikes, buggies and walkers. It is scheduled for completion in mid-May.

Sandy Mactaggart, Argyll and Bute’s executive director of development and infrastructure services, said: “This project was developed in response to requests from the community, the school and local members.

“The area around Dunbeg has been identified for mixed use development, so establishing good links within the village – particularly for walking and cycling – will be of great community benefit both now and in the future”.
