A REVIVAL of the Clyde Valley’s once thriving fruit growing scene has been praised by a Hazelbank orchard owner.

And Duncan Arthur told a Carluke conference that sterling efforts were being made to ensure that the region’s core business made a return to its glory days.

“There has been a resurgence in the last five to seven years,” said Duncan, of Clyde Valley Orchard Group. “There has been a rich crop of apples every September.”
