Friends of Nevis (F0N) held its autumn litter pick and curling ponds tidy up recently.

The group wants to thank all the many volunteers who took part and says it was great to have so many helpers of all ages, some who had come a long way for the event.

Litter was cleared from as much of the glen as possible. This included a large amount of camping equipment, which the owners had abandoned.

With help from two members of the Curling Club, the ponds area was tidied, leaves raked up and the main pond prepared for possible winter use.

FoN would like to thank the Ben Nevis Highland Centre, who once again hosted the start of the event.

Several events will take place between now and Christmas – two bird ringing sessions (weather dependent) will be held at the Glen Nevis Visitor Centre on Sunday November 24 and Sunday December 15; you can drop in to these events at any time between 9am and 3pm.

There will also be a conservation event on Saturday December 7 – for more information visit or email Rory on or telephone him at the Nevis Landscape Partnership office on 01397 701088.
