A Sutherland angling club held a tree planting session last month.

Members of Loch Brora Angling Club planted around 30 trees along the fence line at Gordonbush, Strath Brora, where the club moors its boats.

Club representative Iain Miller said: “The club bought 22 trees, all indigenous species, including aspen, alder, hazel and silver birch.

“Ten oak and rowan trees, donated by angling club committee member Michael Banks and grown from seed by his wife, were planted at the same time.

“Over time these trees will enhance the ecology and appearance of the area and attract some insect life to pull the trout towards the surface.”

Mr Miller added that it was hoped to continue to improve the area and make it look more attractive by cutting paths in the grass.

The Loch Brora Angling Club boats were put on the water on March 30 in preparation for the start of the new season on April 1.
