Deer needed in Glen Rosa
Sir, Regarding the recent article in last week’s Banner regarding Glen Rosa, I don’t agree with the National Trust for Scotland’s plans to put a deer fence to stop the deer and sheep grazing Glen Shant and Glen Rosa.
This area needs deer and sheep to keep the ground under control and also the birds of prey and smaller birds need bare ground to survive.
The NTS wants to recover some of the landscape but that does not stop their vehicles using the road up the glen which was repaired a few years ago at no cost to the NTS. So if it is important to recover the landscape, it should look after the road it has wasted.
Yours, Alastair Hendry, Glen Rosa.
