Work being done in the Lower Birks

If you are in Aberfeldy over the next couple of months, you may notice that Alex Butter, Landscape Contractor, is working in the Lower Birks, between the War Memorial Arch and our Wee Birks field. He is upgrading paths, making stone seats, erecting some statuary etc.

We have given him approval to use our field to access his work site from the level area near Burns Brae.  He will be putting mats down across the level grass area and making an angled ramp down the steep slope.  A couple of red-berried elders may suffer.  He will be using a flail mower across the field itself, mostly along a route that we have already begun to establish.

He is obligated to reinstate all "damage" upon completion.  We may wish to retain the ramp, but we will have time to decide that during the 5-6 weeks contract time.
