Mull's Aros Park access restricted
Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS) is advising Mull residents and visitors that access to the main Aros Park driveway will be closed for two weeks from Monday 4 December.
There will allow FLS teams cut back overgrown vegetation and work to make safe large and potentially dangerous trees.
However, the Park will still be accessible on foot, with banksmen working on either side of the mobile ‘no-entry’ work zone.
Vehicles will be able to use the drive in the evenings and at weekends.
FLS’ Area Visitors Services Manager, Jo MacLean, said;
“Before the winter’s bad weather sets in properly we need to get this work done, both to make the access road in safe for everyone to use and to improve the overall appearance of the Park.
“The nature of the work, which will include repairing pot holes in the main car park, will involve heavy machinery and chainsaw use, so to keep visitors – and our team – safe, we’ll need to restrict vehicular access along the drive.
“Cars parked over-night will not be able to access the drive to leave in the morning.
“We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause.”
Signage throughout the site will provide essential access and safety information, including alternative day-time parking at Aros Falls Car park (previously Alainn View) and Tobermory.
Visitors are urged to follow all safety signage and on-site instructions.
For further information on the works, we will be providing regular updates on our website: Aros Park - Forestry and Land Scotland
