Deer needed in Glen Rosa

The Arran Banner - - Letters -

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.
