There's an article in Nairn's local 'dead-tree' rag ('The Nairnshire Telepgraph' - no online presence) this week advising that the signs prohibiting dogs from the 'Central Beach' at Nairn between April and September each year are to come down.
Basically the signs became illegal effective 2002, following the adoption of the Scottish Access Code, but Highland Council had 'kept the signs in place because dogs still have to be kept under a measuure of control at the beach'. However, according to the Nairnshire article:
"In the last few days the bad signs had been challenged by a member of the public and it had been decided to remove them."
Call me an old cynic, but I wonder just how many other illegal signs purporting to enforce non-existent rules, or legislation which is no longer in force, are Highland Council still using, until some brave member of the public has the temerity to challenge them?
