Access work completed at Abbey Craig
The latest IFLI access paths project was completed last month as the path leading to the summit of Abbey Craig, home to one of the Forth Valley's most iconic structures.
The path bordering the main road up the Wallace Monument has been upgraded - formerly just a desire line worn in the grass, it now runs for 500 metres up the hill, and was constructed from recycled road arisings. Additional work also saw the clearing of drains and culverts around the site to reduce the risk of flooding and erosion to the path.
It's estimated the route is used by over 90,000 people a year, both tourists and locals, and it will soon also be the site of one of the planned IFLI interpretation beacons.
