Channel 5 logo - 2011Just to remind everyone that “Loch Lomond: A Year in the Wild” starts tonight Channel 5 at 8:00pm.

It’s a documentary series featuring the wildlife of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park in Scotland, filmed across one year. It is spring, and migrating ospreys return to the park. Pregnant red deer come down from the mountain tops to the lowlands to calve. On a mountainside, two big cocks fight for the right to mate in a spectacle called a lek.

It’s not fibre broadband, which give you speeds of up to 76 Mbps, but it’s a good start!

This week we’re taking a pleasant, circular three-mile walk from Killearn, which crosses the River Endrick through the Carbeth Estate.

It is important to mention that the walk also crosses an awkward small tributary, which flows into the Endrick, and can be difficult to negotiate – especially in the rainy season.

Killearn Village Hall management committee has firmly denied an accusation this week that local people can no longer afford to rent the hall.

The hall is run and managed by not-for-profit Killearn Community Futures Company (KCFC) after ownership was transferred to them from Stirling Council at the end of 2012.
