The road to Rubha Reidh has been used for 100 years for locals and visitors alike to get to this much loved local landmark and beauty spot and the coast beyond. Now one of the many authorised users and one who pays no contribution into maintenance costs of the private road from Melvaig to Rubha Reidh is trying to stop all vehicle access to Rubha Reidh limiting access to the very fit who can walk or cycle the 7 mile round trip - the other authorised users are happy with the situation as it has always been - drive it at your own risk! To stop this happening the community want to lobby the Highland Council to adopt the road to open up access for all. Please sign - the stronger the lobby the better!
Thanks you so much for your support - we are almost there! The Highland Council has recognised the road as a 'right of public passage' and it is now registered by them as an unadopted road. The public have spoken!
We would like to replace the present aggressive signs with welcoming signage, parking signs and interpretive panels.
We're raising £2500 to be
administered by Gairloch Community Council and Melvaig Common Grazings to preserve and maintain community and public vehicular access to Rua Reidh - a beautiful lighthouse located in Gairloch, Wester Ross.
