Paddled this the other day and noticed a sign a couple of eddies above the road bridge warning of an oil control boom below the bridge, proceed with caution - I didn't make the eddy and don't recall the exact wording.

We didn't see a boom under the road bridge and decided to get out there (steep bank) instead of continuing under the rail bridge to the last rapid - does anyone know if there really is a boom somewhere downstream or is the sign out of date or perhaps malevolent?

If river levels play ball a Roy into middle Spean trip could be on the cards in the next few weeks so it would be good to know!

Almost forgot, no boom, apparently it washed away almost immediately.
Forgot to remove the sign from the tree though - doh!
