May Monthly Volunteer Day

May’s volunteer day was held up at Glencanisp Lodge carrying out some path maintenance on the Glencanisp Nature Trail.

Working on the Path

Guest Blog by path worker, Mark O’Brien To have the privilege to be able to work in such an amazing place really is the best thing about building the Suilven path. I’ve always had an attachment to Glencanisp since I first arrived that spring in 2014. Now I’m getting the chance to watch it change
