New Glenmore water supply is example for Cairngorms

11th May 2004

The village of Glenmore in the Cairngorms now has access to a new and secure supply of water thanks to close partnership working.

For over a century, the village had to rely on a water supply from the Allt Choire Chondlaich burn which, at times, proved unreliable. The new bore-hole supply now guarantees a secure and healthy water supply for the community of Glenmore.

The partnership between the Forestry Commission Scotland and local residents became a reality with the help of extra funding from the Scottish Executive.

Andrew Thin, Convenor of the Cairngorms National Park Authority, officially turned on the new tap on Monday 10 May.
