Beach hut damages island’s environment

Sir.

Balevullin is a small Hebridean township on the Isle of Tiree. It comprises scattered whitewashed houses against the stunning machair landscape.

The township is home to a beach, birds, cows and people. People come last because, in order for people to live and raise families in Balevullin, there has to be partnership and respect with the environment.

We are now a township divided and portrayed as an anti-tourist, negative bunch of locals who resist any form of development. This is very untrue. Balevullin beach is one of the most lovely on the island and is a haven for surfers, dog walkers, families, stargazers and sunset-watchers. Visitors have always received a warm welcome and a tow out of the sand every time they get stuck.

We welcome sustainable and plan ned development that will attract families and tourists to the island but only as part of a managed process which puts the conservation and preservation of the township at its centre.
