New Friends promotion at Loch Katrine to help fund lochside recreational projects

Wednesday, September 6 2017

Friends of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs, the independent conservation and heritage charity for Scotland’s first National Park, has stepped up efforts to promote its ‘making a difference’ agenda with the siting of three new attractive promotional posters at one of the National Park’s most scenic beauty spots.


With the support of the Steamship Sir Walter Scott Trust, the Friends have installed three attractive promotional posters at busy visitor hubs on the shores of Loch Katrine. Two of the posters promoting the work of the Friends are now installed on the attractive pagoda beside Trossachs Pier and a third is on the noticeboard at Stronachlachar. Membership leaflets are also being distributed at shore outlets and on the steamship.


A donation post has also been installed following the success of the ones located at Tom Weir’s Rest in Balmaha last year. Any funds raised will be used for heritage and recreational projects at Loch Katrine.

Commenting on the Friends’ awareness raising project Gordon Allan, Managing Director of the Steamship Company, said: “We have worked closely with the Friends over the years and they have done a great job supporting worthwhile projects through the Friends of OUR park visitor giving scheme which we have been pleased to support.”


Friends Chairman, James Fraser added: “These new displays will be seen by the 300,000 visitors who visit Loch Katrine each year and hopefully will raise awareness of the Friends as well as generating much needed funds for projects around the loch which will increase visitor enjoyment of this special place.”
