Dumyat is used by many people, this needs to be done properly and what is being done just now is not proper. If you use the hill, please send in a email of complaint so they are aware of the issues this is causing.

A rather sad turn of events is happening just now - Dumyat is being 'updated'/'upgraded'/'improved' - apparently as part of the Denny-Beauly power line, path remediation and improvements was part of the deal. Somehow, the path to the top of Dumyat was part of this and the work has now started.
Machinery is on site and material is being dropped and 'shaped' - really unsure how it is going to look, but I suspect for the next several years it is going to look bad.
A real shame as Dumyat has always been a really nice ride, however, with the massive increase in users on the hill - mountain bikers, runners, walkers, etc. the path has taken a serious beating and it is now a motorway compared to how it was even 5 years ago. The boggy sections have widened and lengthened and they don't appear to dry out like they used to in the summer.
