I have been in touch with COG people recently who are under the impression that the Callum Brae rural lease has now been converted to a nature park and is open to public access. This is not so. The decision has been announced but not implemented. Before it is implemented some minor works relating to signage and access points will be needed, and this will possibly, but not definitely, occur this financial year.

Meanwhile, the lessees are continuing to pay rent and operate the property, and do not welcome people who walk on as if it were already a public space.

For people who wish to take an extended nature walk in the Mugga Lane area, may I commend the Mount Mugga Nature Park. This contains much of interest and you hardly ever see anyone there. The top and east side of the Isaacs Ridge is also good, although I am uncertain of the exact legal status of the lower slopes

Anyone who wishes to stay informed of progress on Callum Brae should get in touch with the Parks Service - David Jensen or Daniel Iglesias; the numbers seem to change a bit but the ones in my book are 6207 2093 and 6260 9264.
