    I recall in Perthshire someone put up a similar sign in the purple and green colours used by Perth and kinross Council, presumably with the intention of making it appear to be an official council sign.

    I've looked at it carefully. It's not a fake sign. It really is a sign!!!

    Kayaking or rowing is OK then! Just add a spraydeck or put on some oars

    I wonder if the sign has been taken from somewhere else where the EA has water level or chemistry monitoring equipment.

    Perhaps just another piece of rubbish that floated there all by itself. The power of spate conditions even drove the nails in???
