The road to the Inquiry was long and, for most objectors and onlookers, impossibly difficult to follow. The key milestones leading to the date when the Inquiry was announced can now be found in the Archive section of this website. Follow the link on the margin on the right to the previous version of the Inquiry page.

All the documents relating to the Inquiry are available on the website of the government-run Planning and Environmental Appeals Division. That is found at The case reference for the Inquiry into the A9 Dualling, Killiecrankie to Glen Garry scheme, is CPO-340-4.

There are over 1,600 documents relating just to the Inquiry. These include all the objections, the studies that were done at all stages of road planning, correspondence between Transport Scotland and relevant parties, evidence in support of respective claims and our submissions.

In addition to the written submissions kept on the DPEA website, the oral evidence given at the main inquiry was recorded and telecast. The videos are available on and the sessions relating exclusively to Killiecrankie battlefield issues are found by searching the same case reference of CPO-340-4.

Our position aligned with that of many other participating objectors. To help streamline the process, the submissions were made in the name of the Combined Group of Objectors. These include:
Our final document was submitted on 17 March 2020 at the invitation of the Reporter when Transport Scotland lodged additional documents after the deadline. Although we were surprised at the unusual timing of this submission, we think it reveals much of Transport Scotland’s attitude and practice.

To help protect this internationally important heritage asset we launched a petition that had gathered 5,766 signatures from round the globe by the time we submitted it in June 2022 to Michael Matheson, the Cabinet Secretary for Net Zero, Energy and Transport.
The job title highlights his quandary.  Although he is the Minister in charge of all A9 decisions, he is also committed to the more recent green aims to reduce car miles by 20% by 2030; to phase out the need for new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030; and to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2045.
