Anyone visiting Strathbeg will have noticed the ongoing battle we have with our access track to the Visitor Centre. However, after years of unrelenting pothole wars, we are finally getting an upgrade! CHANGE TO DATE - Starting from 24 February, work will take place to repair and resurface the track - this will take around three days and is weather dependent, so we can't predict when it will start. What it does mean is that for the period of the work, the track will be completely closed, and with it access to the Visitor Centre. As soon as we know it's actually happening we will try to let everyone know so there are no wasted trips, but please bear with us!
Access to the Lochside hides remains open. Access on foot to Tower Pool and Dunbar hides should still be possible over the fields from near the Rookery, but please be courteous with your parking if you do this, and don't block the passing places on the roads around the site.
It will all be worth it in the end!
