Beinn Reithe

Loch Long Salmon have launched an appealing for the proposed Beinn Reithe project near Arrochar, which was initially rejected by the Board of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park in October 2022.

We are disappointed that Officers and the Board of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park opposed the plans and believe the decision was fundamentally flawed and based on fear and a misunderstanding of the technology and its potential to transform the Scottish aquaculture sector.

 If approved, the semi-closed containment farm at Beinn Reithe near Arrochar would not only deliver high-skilled jobs and contribute to the Circular Economy. 

The project would also demonstrate the commercial viability of this farming system and place the area at the forefront of sustainable economic growth, while overcoming environmental concerns about existing salmon farming techniques.
