The path leading to Bracklinn Falls has reopened following the removal of Bracklinn Bridge. Visitors can now walk to Bracklinn Falls and back, though the full circuit walk cannot currently be completed as there is no access to the east side of the Falls. Plans to replace the bridge will be progressed in 2022.
Kenny Auld, Head of Visitor Services at Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Authority, said:
“Following specialist engineering and timber surveys, The Bracklinn Bridge in Callander will be removed and replaced. The bridge has been closed in recent months after an inspection identified some areas of deterioration requiring further examination.
“The decision has been taken that replacing the current structure is the safest course of action. The existing bridge remains closed and will be removed in coming months.
“Installing a new Bracklinn Bridge is being progressed as a priority and we expect this to be in place next year.
“While we recognise there will be disruption to local walkers and visitors over the coming months, the safety of residents and visitors who use the bridge is our first priority.
“We would ask people not to use the bridge or climb over the temporary barriers currently in place.”
