Loch will feature on BBC
THE stars of BBC's Countryfile visited Loch Lomond last week for a special show which will air on Sunday night.
Matt Baker and Ellie Harrison explore the people and issues around the Loch including how the National Park rangers engage with young people to teach them about behaving responsibly in the countryside.
After a thrilling landing on the surface of the loch, Matt then discovers an even more unusual way of getting about, for horses at least.
Loch Lomond is full of more than thirty islands, and on Inchtavannach he meets the aptly named Roy Rogers, who gets his horses to the mainland by letting them swim.
The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park is a world famous beauty spot attracting over five million visitors a year.
But recently park rangers have had more than just a little litter to deal with.
Ellie discovers that antisocial behaviour, disruptive campers and deer poaching have become far more common here.
She meets rangers and police to find out how they are tackling the problem.
The show airs on Sunday December 11 on BBC1 at 5.55pm.
