Controversial contracts continue

Works continue on two Highland Council projects on the banks of the River Ness which have caused significant concerns to both anglers and the general public.

The so-called ‘My Ness arts project’ at the Little Isle Pool is scheduled to be completed by the end of June, but current progress suggests that it will continue into July — when Ness salmon begin to arrive in numbers. On anglers’ estimation, the wall will reduce the fishable area of the pool by some 60 yards — at one of the key catching points opposite the outfall of the Aultnaskiach Burn

Further upstream, ground works for the much-vaunted Archimedes Screw generation and visitor centre project have caused the closure of a popular walk.The works have also resulted in the installation of barriers to prevent access to a substantial section of the west bank of the Mill Stream, a productive area for salmon and sea trout.

My Ness: July completion?

A walk no more: Completion next year?

Lost fishings: Jock Dyce would be furious!
