Torrential torrent pulverises paths

Storm damage © Rhian Davies

A few weeks ago we experienced high levels of water overflowing from surrounding farmland into the Falls of Clyde. This was rather inconveniently channelled down one of the paths near the beginning of the reserve. We have managed to temporarily repair the section just before the start of the boardwalk which has suffered quite regularly this year from erosion due to heavy rainfall and surface run-off. However you will notice that the path that rises steeply up towards the vehicle track is still yet to be repaired. The path is still open and we ask you to take care when walking along this route. We are looking for a more permanent fix to this ongoing problem of erosion on these sections of path, so please bear with us while we come up with a solution.
