Bennachie Forum > path blocked?

Went for a walk with the kids and the dog last week from Back o Bennachie heading towards Rowntree, along the fireroad till it turns to path, down the narrower track and just before hill croft confronted with a huge fence construction site style. There was a notice attached from Aberdeenshire council which stated the path was shut for safety reasons, been like this for a few weeks with no sign of anything happening. Does this fall into Ballies territory, or can you advise what is happening in this instance?

The Bailies of Bennachie have followed up your query with Aberdeenshire Council Access officers and we have recieved the the following reply "Aberdeenshire Council are aware of the issues and are taking steps to resolve the matter but it may take some time to sort out fully". So at present the path is closed.
Best wishes

8 months on and this path is still blocked. :(
Does anyone know what's happening?

We will ask Aberdeenshire Council Access officers for an update as there are on going access issues in this area.

Aberdeenshire Council are still looking to resolve this issue but are needing to consider what options are available to them in terms of legal powers
