‘One is of the cage trap used to capture the ‘Affric puma’ in 1980, photographed still in situ in an FC woodland at Kerrow, Strathglass by Jack Mackay in 1994
This was a real puma and allegedly remains the only big cat ever captured in Scotland. It was caught by a local farmer Ted Noble who built the trap. His sons still live at Kerrow with their families on the farm.’

This is another image of a trap but looks different to the trap featured in Record No 3106 of this website. Perhaps several traps were constructed for different locations.
