Kilmallie Community Council represents everyone who lives and works in Corpach, Banavie, Muirshearlich, Glen Loy, Camaghael, Annat, Fassfern and Kinlocheil, and all the small places along the north shore of Loch Eil, and on the banks of the Caledonian Canal as far as Moy. We also welcome all visitors to this beautiful part of Lochaber in the West Highlands of Scotland.

Work near the Black Parks Road

Although outwith Kilmallie, many of our residents use the Black Parks Road to go to Fort William and will want to know about forthcoming works in that vicinity, even although they shouldn’t affect the direct route to town.    

HITRANS has obtained funding from the Lochaber Town Centre Fund and Transport Scotland to widen and surface the footpath behind the Ben Nevis Hotel, leading from the railway footbridge at Inverlochy to the retail area on the A82.  The footpath will be closed for one week from 17th May for this work to be carried out.

The road alongside Old Inverlochy Castle will also be resurfaced, with that section of route closed for one day during works in the week beginning 24th May.  A diversion will be in place for pedestrians and cycles through the grounds of Old Inverlochy Castle.

Later in the year it is hoped to install lighting along the route and improved signage, making it a more attractive and safer route year-round.

With 700 pedestrians and 500 cycles recorded on the busiest days last autumn, the Black Parks route is popular with both walkers and cycles.  In April the route was used by an average of 450 walkers and 200 cycles each day.
