Beautiful Loch Etive needs protecting


We refer to the article by Sandy Neil ‘Fish farm operator attacks opposition campaign group’ (The Oban Times, January 19).

We would like to correct Stewart Hawthorn, the farming director for Dawnfresh, who is quoted as saying: ‘The action was initiated by a small group of privileged people, many not from the area.’

Friends of Loch Etive has more than 300 members and these are made up of a mixture of those living in the Loch Etive community and the many regular visitors to Etive.

What Mr Hawthorn says is simply wrong, but with his company’s position so difficult to defend, perhaps it is easier to attack the messenger.

And, of course, the appeal to Scottish ministers was initiated by Dawnfresh itself and it was Argyll and Bute Council, and not Friends of Loch Etive, that refused to grant the certificate that led to the Dawnfresh appeal.
