Dumyat Hill Path Restoration


SP Energy Networks is undertaking works to sensitively restore the existing Dumyat Hill and Cocksburn Reservoir Paths.  This project will employ established upland path techniques to create a naturally formed route allowing areas of erosion to organically regenerate.

The works will form an entirely natural upland path developed in soil and stone pitching which will follow closely the currently used route. This will help to prevent further severe erosion which would only continue to deteriorate without intervention. The aim is not to create a formal path but to replicate the existing path using the same materials in a form that will support ever increasing users and user groups visiting the area.

An example of similar work and what we hope to achieve is shown on the image below.

A spokesperson for SP Energy Networks said: “SP Energy Networks is undertaking works to sensitively restore the existing Dumyat Hill and Cocksburn Reservoir Paths. This project was agreed as part of the Beauly to Denny mitigation works.  The work will take approximately 12 weeks to complete. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we thank the local community and general public for their patience and cooperation during this period. When completed we hope there will be a significant benefit to the community and members of the public who visit the location.”

Our contractors on site will be happy to discuss the techniques being employed for those people who are visiting while the work is taking place.
