The long drawn out saga of Auchinstarry Quarry looks set to be drawing to a close. Work will commence on the 19th of January, and will consist of vegetation removal, removal of part of the drystane dyke along the top of the face, and some scaling (removal) of loose rock. The word I have is that the contractors will attempt to secure any large blocks, so that there should be no major changes to the actual quarry face.
Due to the work taking place access to the top of the promontary and the area immediately below it will be restricted for a period of four weeks. After that hopefully it will be a return to normal. Should I hear anything to the contrary I will update this article.
