Section 2: Balloch to Strathblane

Updated 21/09/20

The fallen tree has now been cleared and the diversion removed.

Original story:

A 1.5km section of the John Muir Way walking route between Balloch and Strathblane, at Merkins forest (north of Burncrooks reservoir), is currently closed due to a fallen tree. A local diversion is in place using forest tracks.

Forestry and Land Scotland are managing the diversion and plan to clear the tree by mid-September. For now, please see the diversion map and follow signage on the ground.

We’ll update here when the main John Muir Way path re-opens.
