Can't stand the guy but just heard that there is to be a discussion in the next couple of hours on the Jeremy Vine show on Radio 2 about the councils plans to clean up Dumbarton rock.

In reply to Al Randall:
They do shoreline clean-ups on and off with locals who come along and the council supply ppe bags pickers etc.

If what they are now going to do is open it up, remove all the trees old shipyard debris etc, then that will help keep away (hopefully) those that use it for drinking etc.

At the moment there is a lot of rusty metal etc around there that the shoreline cleanups just can't tackle. It needs some heavy equipment to make a read difference down there.

I will try and catch up on the prog when I get home, cheers

And of course the delightful view you see from the castle (that will not change despite any cleanup of the castle !)

In reply to Al Randall: Turned out to be a bit of a none event. They are talking about cleaning up the graffiti and, refreshingly, consulting climbers about it. The last word was someone who phoned in to say that it was climbers that spoiled the ambiance of the place so I suppose that could be classed as contentious on here.

Looks like a set of pics of Sonnie Trotter trying Rhapsody to me. Is that what you you meant to link to?
