Loch Lomond Islands survey

The 2007 survey revealed serious deterioration of the selected sites over the previous decade and recommendations were made as to how this important sites can be restored. The cost of restoration is significant and beyond the resources of the Friends, but we are exploring ways of how this important work can be continued.
