In response to an editorial about the repeated breaches of planning requirements at Badaguish by Speyside Trust (see here), I had a letter published in the Strathspey and Badenoch Herald last week explaining what I think has been going on.    I hope to cover this further in the next few weeks but meantime appended are some more photos illustrating why this matters from an environmental perspective.
