Illegal Extraction of Sand on Tiree

Several stories appeared in the National papers this week about some unscrupulous builders removing sand from Tiree. I have my own opinion on this and dont believe any builder would use sand from beaches within concrete as the concrete would ultimately fail. However, it may of been used for paths, landscaping etc. Not a practice i ever wish to indulge in, but here are the stories anyway. The first article is by far the best and prompted many different opinions and comments from readers:

The Times Online

The Scotsman

The Daily Express

The Scottish Sun
