Machar­i­och rocks de­faced

Campbeltown Courier - - LETTERS -

Sir,

I am just back from a turn down to my favourite beaches at Machar­i­och near Southend. I was as­ton­ished and sad­dened that some­one had seen fit, dur­ing last month, to de­face one of the beau­ti­ful large rocks, on the beach, with a list of names, each at least six inches in size, chipped deeply into the sur­face.

I found it hard to un­der­stand why any­one would think it ap­pro­pri­ate to de­face beau­ti­ful nat­u­ral rocks, which have been there for mil­len­nia and which have given end­less peace and plea­sure to so many.

I dis­cov­ered, to my amaze­ment, that the rock was not de­faced by a vis­it­ing mind­less young van­dal but by a proud lo­cal fa­ther and grand­fa­ther.

Shame on you. J Macken­zie, Bella Vista, Pow­foot, Dum­friesshire.
