This report was commissioned by Edinbane Community Company (ECC)
in January 2019. The report is set out in referenece to the Client Brief, it
focuses on the Community Links routes that are imported for local people
to link their communities to services, places of employment and to each
The survey looked at identifying potential cycling walking routes from
north of Flashader through Edinbane and on to Greshornish and
Dunvegan. This would open up a total of 27km of new path the majority of
these routes closely follow the main road the A850. The routes are set out
on the Wider Path Network Map.
The focus of the detailed survey work has been the 0.5km missing link
from Flashader to opposite the campsite at Borve. This section links with
existing paths, that if joined, would provide a safe route between the
neighbouring communities of Flashader, Kildonan and Fanks to the north
and Borve and Edinbane to the south.
The wider network representing approximately 23km of potential routes
was inspected at representative and key locations such as at junctions and
sites of potential obstacles.
