Letter from Andrew Mackay re: Bridge Construction

Letter from Andrew Mackay stating that the crofters have agreed to provide one third of the labour and cost of the proposed bridge but are unwilling to sign and agreement to say they will maintain the pathway after construction.

They are unwilling to sign because they think this will disqualify them from any government grants in the future for this purpose.
