Lessons have to be learned from national park map blunder

THE arrogant blunder by the National Park management of naming shallows, rocks and an abyss in Loch Lomond after themselves, and insultingly calling one place Giro Bay, has reduced them to nation-wide ridicule. Have they nothing better to do?

Not only have they had to destroy £36,000 worth of new navigational maps, but they should reflect if these maps ever needed publishing in the first place as the latest mapping technology seems only to have confirmed the accuracy of the 19th century maps.

This appears to be just another example of a pointless quango creating needless work in an effort to justify its existence.

My comment: Must have a look at the map and see if there is an idiots way or a  quango's folly!
