Thieves have stolen the contents of a cash from a community-owned eagle observatory
The facility in Glen Meavaig, off the road to Hushinish, is free to use for visitors
to view golden eagles soaring around the mountain ridges.
North Harris Trust built the observatory, in one of the best spots in Scotland.
Open to the public all year round, it is extremely popular with visitors and an added
bonus to the local tourism industry.
When the ranger turned up for the weekly eagle watch, “he discovered that the donations
box in the observatory had been broken into and all the money stolen,” said a spokesperson.
“It is regrettable that this fantastic facility, which is largely maintained by donations,
attracted the attention of thieves.
“We have notified the police but if anyone has any information then please contact
us on 01859 502222 or the local police.”
