There seems to be Giant Hogweed - a dangerous and invasive plant - growing along the shore and around the Kilmory roundabout. Please could you confirm if this is Giant Hogweed or Common Hogweed (both look like massive cow parsley). Giant Hogweed can cause terrible burns, long-lasting irritation and even blindness if it is touched and the skin exposed to sunlight. There is a lot of information on the internet eg https://secure.fera.defra.gov.uk/ nonnativespecies/ index.cfm?pageid=152 If Giant Hogweed is present it needs to be controlled before it spreads further.
