We have received reports of suspected blue-green algae at the foreshore around the Lodge on the Loch area at Luss, Loch Lomond.

Please be vigilant and check whether there are signs of blue-green algae growth in the water or around the shoreline. Where there is evidence of this, it would be sensible to avoid swimming or other water-based activities like canoeing or water skiing. Make sure that pets don’t drink or enter the water. Further advice is available on our website.

As a precaution, our environmental health service is posting warning notices in the immediate area and we have informed the Park's Authority.
