Scottish Water Not What it Ougtta

Duncan Gray of the Mountaineering Council of Scotland has reported the following on uk.rec.climbing:Following a report from a walker or backpacker who drank from Loch Avon on Saturday and had a burning throat all weekend, that the water quality in the Garbh Uisge Mor and Beag, and the Feith Buidhe below their confluence, also Loch and River Avon should be considered as undrinkable.Presumably the same may apply to the catchment of the Allt nan Taillear/River Dee and all the Luibeg catchment. Signs have been put up at Cairn Gorm and SEPA and Moray Council have been informed.
