Competing interests

Competing interests in the countryside is not a new phenomenon. But I couldn’t help bring attention to this short piece by the BBC which covers a part of the world dear to me and plenty of other anglers in central-southern Scotland. The John Muir Trust (good people, see the link on the left) are looking to secure the ecological future of the Talla and Gameshope estate (there’s a nice PDF at that link) at the upper end of the River Tweed. As usual, interests from landowners, farmers, would-be windfarm developers and envorinmentalists do battle.
