Scottish Water informed us today that due to the high level of the Loch they will be unable to close the barrage this weekend – 17/18th June – to allow for a clean up of the river. It hjas been decided to cancel the clean up meantime and we’ll monitor weather forecasts to identify another possible date which will be posted in due course. In the past we’ve held clean ups in May, June, August and September but it’s hard to predict future rainfall and give volunteers enough notice. Early season would be ideal, however we are limited by possible disturbance to ground nesting birds. The bailiffs will continue to monitor river access points for anglers.
