Glen Etive Pier

Just thought those members who have enjoyed photographing the old wooden pier remains at the end of Glen Etive might like to know that said pier has now been replaced by a much more functional, but sadly much less attractive, stone and concrete structure.

This has been done in the name of taking lorries off the road, as a large forestry operation is about to begin, and the logs are to be loaded onto boats via this new pier.

What with the recent demise of the burger-van stag, and now the disappearing jetty, EPZers will soon have little reason to come north anymore . . . .

Both sad events, but it won't come as far as you think - at least not until they blow up Stob Dearg, make a huge parking area out of Rannoch Moor and block the access road to the Clachaig Inn...

Not until Alba is bulldozed flat and concreted over.
