'Tis the season to be jolly....well almost

All of a sudden, it seems as though Christmas really isn't far away SO.... there are still a couple of cottages available for Christmas & just one left for New Year. So why not be spontaneous & do something different this year - Cardross Holiday Homes offer a fantastic getaway in a superb rural location.

For those that like a knees -up at Hogmanay, look no further than the Port of Menteith Ceilidh or those that don't  just batton down the hatches for a fantastic New Year in the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park !

(Issued on behalf of Cardross Estate)

 Cardross Estate today issued the following statement after the conviction and sentencing of a gamekeeper at Stirling Sheriff Court on offences under the Wildlife and Countryside Act, 1981.

Sir Archie Orr Ewing, owner of Cardross Estate, said: "The reputation of the estate has been unjustly tarnished by the publicity around these court proceedings. The estate does not have any involvement whatsoever in the sporting management of the land in question. The area of land where these offences occurred is let on a long-term lease to a third party who has full rights and responsibilities for the management of sporting activity. The gamekeeper is employed by the third party and has never been employed by the estate.

"Having co-operated fully with the authorities during their investigation and having been asked to be a prosecution witness, I am bitterly disappointed that the Crown Office did not see fit to clarify the estate’s position in its public statement following the case."

"Cardross Estate is an estate that takes its land management responsibilities very seriously and is a business focused on the local community and the delivery of sustainable rural enterprise. In particular, we are committed to contributing to the tourism offering of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park."
