A challenge has been set between the Rannoch Station Bloom Group and the Rannoch Path Group to jointly work on a project! However, the challenge has grown arms and legs! The priority was to fix and clean a boardwalk, but has developed into restoring the mini bog and provide an access for all eating area for visitors and locals.
The mini bog and boardwalk were developed by the Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust over 20 years ago, which not only included the boardwalk and bog but also a shelter and way marker. All of these features have been a huge asset to the car park area and just need a little work to bring them back to their former glory.
The first session saw five volunteers almost madden by the midge…. the first day of them appearing as well! Midge nets and a fan did save the day! In three hours the group dealt with the broken section of boardwalk, cutting back encroaching vegetation, crown lifting on neighbouring trees, litter picking and cleaning of the information board.
If you are interested in joining these groups to restore the mini bog, please contact Annie on firstname.lastname@example.org or Jeannie at email@example.com and you will be contacted with times and meeting place for the next stage of restoration in November.
In the volunteers own words of their experience, please see the facebook post below.
Many Thanks to Jeannie and the Rannoch Paths Group for their work at Rannoch Station Car Park yesterday
