A CAMPAIGNING hillwalker is calling on those who visit the Cairngorms to help clear litter.

There have been a number of littering incidents on the Highland mountains and Neil Reid, a volunteer who tends Corrour Bothy in the Lairig Ghru, insists hillwalkers must pick up litter they find.

He has posted a YouTube clip of the four hours he spent burning rubbish and the Mountaineering Council of Scotland has tweeted the clip.

Reid said: “Perhaps hill-goers and bothy folk who unleash their righteous anger every time litter is mentioned aren’t so good as they like to think ... perhaps they don’t care quite enough to pick up others’ rubbish.”
