The CMFA was set up by a group of volunteers from the community in response to issues raised at a Comrie Community Council meeting.
The path is suitable for all walkers and is already being used by walkers in wheelchairs and people with small chidren in buggies.
More information about the Path
The Lednock Millennium Footpath is a woodland walk connected to the village by a lane 500m long by the side an open meadow and away from traffic. This lane, part of the “Safer Routes to Schools”, starts at the School Car Park, connects with lanes from the village and gives clear access to the start of the LMF and Laggan Wood Car Park. This lane has already been upgraded by the CMFA.
The Lednock Millennium Footpath is part of the Glen Lednock Circular Walk and acts as the main access to the Comrie northern footpath network. It forms part of the Core Path Network.
Access from the village end of the path was unsuitable for construction equipment. In conjunction with the Forestry Commission a link track has been built from the Milton Road to connect with the northern end of the Lednock Millennium Footpath . This was used for construction of the LMF. It links with the Northern Path Network and is suitable for assisted wheelchair users.
The Lednock Millennium Footpath has been designed to meet “BT Countryside for All Standards”. Finished with a hard surface and using careful gradient management the path and suitable for all abilities including unassisted wheelchair users.
A wetland and a wild flower meadow has been created with the help of the local Cub Scout group. This area was an old chicken farm and many loads of rubbish were removed Planting of wild flowers, shrubs, trees and bulbs has taken place and will be continued along the route of the path. This will create nature trails, sensory and study areas. The wetland has evolved naturally from an existing wet area. It is now home to newts, frogs, toads, red demoiselles and a variety of aquatic life. Frequent rest areas have been created with good clear signage and interpretation panels depicting the industrial and natural heritage to be found within the wood.
