Around 50 local people recently gathered to celebrate the opening of Ballogie Community Path.

Providing a safe link between the upper and lower areas of Marywell in Ballogie, the path is the result of a lengthy community partnership project that brought together Ballogie Community Association, Birse and Ballogie Community Council, Ballogie Estate Enterprises, as well as a number of other local figures including tenant farmer Gordon Dinnie, and contractors James Reid and Davie Winton.

Local resident David Younie, who helped to secure funding for the project. said: “The new path is perfect for walking or cycling, and has transformed Marywell and Ballogie for both locals and visitors.”
