Stop the destruction of the environment threatened by Murrayshall Quarry at Gillies Hill Cambusbarron. At this time Gilles Hill Cambusbarron, determined by many as a National Heritage, is under threat by \"Murrayshall Quarry Liaison Group\" who wish to resume removing the remainder of Gillies Hill by Quarrying. The Community Council of Cambusbarron called for every household in the area to write a letter to the press, or their MSP, or their Councillor to demand that the authorities stop destruction of the environment. Gillies Hill is a national asset - it must not be destroyed. You can help by expressing your condemnation of this action by writing to: The Editor, Stirling Observer,40 Upper Craigs, Stirling, Stirlingshire FK8 2DW The Editor, Scotland on Sunday, Barclay House, 108 Holyrood Road, Edinburgh EH8 8AS Your MSP, The Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh EH99 1SP Your Councillor, Stirling Council, Viewforth, Stirling, FK8 2ET The Murrayshall Quarry Liaison Group has not had unequivocal answers from Stirling Council on the local concerns: 1) Have the current proposals for quarrying stretched beyond those permitted by the 1980 /1982 planning consent 2) Have the 1980/1982 planning conditions been changed by the 2002 review made by Stirling Council without consultation with the community council 3)Previous planning conditions ref S/80/116 state at Condition 3:- a) The Developer shall ensure that, throughout the period of extraction, the quarry operations do not create a nuisance to the community or the environment.

    Those Tree's quite probably are some of the original seedlings that were sent to Patrick Matthew of Gourdiehill a local Forester from the Carse of Gowrie whose son John D. Matthew sent them to him from what is known today as the North Grove of the Calaveras Big Tree State Park in the California Gold fields of 1853. This seed source was the first to be introduced to first Scotland then all of Europe. Patrick Matthew is a direct Descendant of Robert de Bruce and William Oliphant the sires of Elizabeth de Bruce and Robert Oliphant whose descendants are the Lords Oliphant of Athal and Dupplin Castle. as well as The Duncan Lairds of Lundie to include the families of Admiral Adam Duncan The first Viscount Duncan of Camperdown and Admiral Adam Drummond of Megginch..
