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.

My papa walked these woods from just after WW1 until his early 90s (he died at 100 in 2007) and took all his kids and grandchildren up there to learn to love the woods. This lovely and special place must not be destroyed for the sake of profit/ filthy lucre of the few.
