The communities of Spean Bridge and Roy Bridge are exploring the idea of a link for safe active travel between the two locations.

Those behind the scheme say they are are hoping to make an application to active travel charity, SUSTRANS, for a feasibility study.

Ideas include a route parallel to the A86 between Roy Bridge and Spean Bridge; from Roy Bridge to the south side of the Spean at Bunroy linking to tracks to Spean Bridge and a possible connection from Spean Bridge to the Leanachan crossroads on the south side of the railway to connect with paths to Fort William.

Organisers told the Lochaber Times: ‘We would welcome ideas and participation from the communities of the two villages. We have The support of Kate Forbes MSP’
