[Oldshoremore Beach, Kinlochbervie]A brief follow-up on the piece about quad-bikes churning up the beach at Oldshoremore.

It has been confirmed that Oldshoremore Beach is, in fact, privately owned down to the *low* tide line and not owned by the Crown as stated by Highland Council's Graham MacKenzie.

Oldshoremore Beach forms part of the Rhiconich Estate and the owners have confirmed that whilst they are happy for the public to use the beach for leisure pursuits this does not include the use of motorised vehicles and that they have not given permission to anyone to do so.

Furthermore it has been confirmed with Scottish Natural Heritage that the machair and dunes are protected by law from damage, being both a SSSI and a SAC.
