Loch cleanup hailedas success
Volunteers taking part in the latest Make a Difference Day helped to remove trees and shrubs to open up scenic views of Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond along a stretch of the busy A82 tourist route.
A group of 30 volunteers travelled to Inverbeg, just north of Luss, to remove several hundred metres of overgrown plants and shrubs from the side of the road as part of the event organised by Friends of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs to help give motorists, cyclists and walkers clear views of Loch Lomond.
The volunteers also helped with a litter clearance exercise, which resulted in dozens of bags of rubbish being collected from litter strewn laybys and neighbouring areas beside the A82.
The event was the latest Make a Difference Day to be led by the Friends, with previous days involving litter and rhododendron clearance and path improvements works at different locations around the National Park.
Friends vice-chairman John Urquhart said: “Anybody passing this area of Loch Lomond now has a much better view of its natural beauty.”
