A FRESH appeal has been made to people in Ross-shire to take their litter home with then when visiting riverside beauty spots.

The Cromarty Firth Fishery Board and Trust has issued a number of appeals recently over littering around rivers within its catchment area.

It said this weekend: "It is so sad to see the amount of litter left beside the rivers across the district once again this week.

"One wonders what goes through people's heads when they show utter disregard for not only the environment and the wildlife that lives in it, but also the members of the public who enjoy walking in the countryside.

"Surely if you can carry it in with you then you can carry it out. Please think of others and dispose of your waste correctly and help keep Scotland tidy."

The Cromarty Firth Fishery Board is responsible for the management of the wild salmon and sea trout stocks of all the rivers running into the Cromarty Firth.

It carries out a wide variety of fishery protection and fishery management activities on land, river and sea.
