Anglers may get more lochside facilities in national park
Bookmark and Share
People who like to go walking or camping are not the only people whose activities are considered in a new plan for part of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park - Those heading there with fishing tackle are too.

The Five Lochs Visitor Management Plan has identified the widespread desire for more facilities by the shores of Loch Venachar, Loch Lubnaig, Loch Earn, Loch Achray and Loch Voil as being very important, with a poll finding 60.1 per cent wanted to see more places to get refreshments.

It also noted "management of fishing activity" was an issue that needs to be addressed and this may mean better licensing and steps taken to provide facilities as well as restrict excessive activity.

Those driving to such places to fish may also be pleased by the plan's stated intention to invest in car parks and tackle problem parking.

One body taking some clear steps to provide angling facilities is the Broads Authority.

In September it announced the completion of a joint initiative with the Environment Agency to provide new fishing platforms on a 150-metre stretch of reed bed on the River Waveney near Worlingham in Suffolk.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801489100-ADNFCR
