Work has been on-going to improve the condition of the path through the dramatic gorge of Cleghorn Glen, part of the Clyde Valley Woodlands National Nature Reserve (NNR), to the north of Lanark. This work has been carried out by local company Clydesdale Community Initiative (CCI) and is hopefully the first phase of a larger project with the intention of improving the durability  and safety of the path network at Cleghorn Glen.

A team of workers from CCI undertook the project during November. The work includes the construction and installation of steps to help walkers negotiate particularly steep and slippery sections of the path, in addition to localised drainage works to improve the condition of the path. To date the work has concentrated on the path downstream of Leitchford bridge, but subject to the availability of funds, it is hoped that further improvements can be carried out later in 2015 to the path upstream of the bridge, which can be very muddy at times.
