The River Annan Trust
The River Annan Trust (RAT) was set up in August 2010 to continue to improve and protect the rivers environment, engage in research towards better management of the resource, generate sustainable access to the river and to educate the general public on the importance of the river.
Whilst the trust is one of the newest river trusts in Scotland, it is in the fortunate position that it is able to build upon a wealth of work carried out by the River Annan District Salmon Fisheries Board. The Trust is currently actively involved in a number of projects and you can find more information about them on this site.
