The KoSAA was delighted to receive funding from the Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) project team at Loch Buidhe Substation which has enabled us to purchase a Highlander Club 15 fishing boat to replace the old leaking boat on Loch Cracail Mor.
The new boat has already been used by members and we are very grateful to SSEN for this generous sponsorship.
SSEN Project Manager, Russell Stewart, said:
We are delighted to be able to support the Kyle of Sutherland Angling Association by providing a new boat and hope that this will help retain the tourism and visitors who come to Loch Cracail Mor, located to the south west of Loch Buidhe substation, to go loch fishing.
As a responsible developer, we try to work actively with local communities to show care for the environment where we are working and to minimise disruption and support long term economic benefits.
