Have your say on camping, says national park body
Bookmark and Share
The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Authority has issued a reminder that people have until May 3rd to respond to a public consultation over proposals to restrict camping on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond.

It is seeking to prevent so-called wild camping on the stretch between Drymen and Rowardennan, due to the anti-social activities of some people staying in the vicinity, including littering, vandalism and fire damage.

The plan is to limit camping to dedicated sites along the bank.

According to the authority, over 250 responses have already been received.

Those who wish to go camping by the loch may want to make a submission to the authority on the issue.

Loch Lomond's east bank is a popular area for visitors as it lacks the heavy traffic of the west side, along which the A82 runs.

The West Highland way runs alongside the east bank and many use Rowardennan as the start point for an ascent of Ben Lomond, the southernmost Munro.
