Mull will be poi­soned by use of in­sec­ti­cide

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, It is sad that the plants at Pen­nyghael on the Isle of Mull, which were once the source of medicine and heal­ing for kings and the peo­ple of Scot­land (http:// www. scot­clans.com/ the- beaton- doc­tors-of-mull/), could now be the source of ill­ness and dis­ease to the wildlife and the com­mu­nity of the is­land and its vis­i­tors.

Til­hill Forestry is plant­ing trees im­preg­nated with a neon­i­coti­noid in­sec­ti­cide to pro­vide toi­let rolls for China.

What an in­dict­ment of our so­ci­ety.

Michael Shil­son, Creag Na Meala, Der­vaig, Isle of Mull.
