The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park has announced a public consultation over the proposed introduction of new byelaws concerning those looking to go camping
along its shores.
It has initiated the discussion amid concerns that wild camping along the eastern shore of the loch is spoiling the local environment, with fires, litter and anti-social behaviour causing problems along a stretch between Balmaha and Rowardennan.
Commenting on the proposals to restrict camping to designated sites in the area, chief executive for the national park authority Fiona Logan said: "Most of the issues we face are related to informal camping and we have to look at taking action before the environment so many people enjoy is destroyed forever."
The consultation continues until May 3rd and those wishing to spend a weekend camping
by the loch may find that the new rules enable them to have a more pleasant experience.
Visitors to the east side of the loch are able to access some notable walking country, such as Conic Hill - which marks the highland boundary fault line - and Ben Lomond, the southernmost Munro.
