The Peffery Way

The Peffery Way Association has been established with the aim of creating a low level foot/cycle path link between Strathpeffer and Dingwall using the disused railway line as much as possible.

Already the Association has done some work on the former railway line using volunteer labour to remove vegetation, scrub trees, etc.

To complete the full route between Strathpeffer and Dingwall it is estimated that the cost will be of the order of £750,000.

Those interested in helping in a practical way, with fund-raising, or donating, should visit the webpage www.peffrywayassociation.scot 
or email  info@pefferywayassociation.scot 



In October 2018, as part of Highland Council's archaeology fortnight, members of the public were able to see the mile of pathway already constructed by the Peffery Way Association, with appropriate explanations from the volunteers.


Looking towards the end of the one mile of construction.


As far as it goes by October 2018.

Phase 2 of the 6km project centres on a 5km section and depends on successful grant applications for £150,000 of the estimated £200,000 required for the next section.


An explanation of the work so far.
