Loch Cluanie Diver Rafts
RSPB and local volunteers built
The RSPB and local volunteers built and sited two floating nesting platforms in Loch Cluanie for Black-throated Divers. Black-throated Divers do breed on this loch, but productivity is low because of the large-scale fluctuations in water levels caused by hydro-electric generation. Floating nest platforms have been used elsewhere in Highland with great success and it was felt that that they would be successful here. The rafts were sited at each end of the loch, and will be monitored by the RSPB and volunteers to see how successful they are.
