Law-abiding Lomond campers to gain new protection
Bookmark and Share
Those camping in tents by Loch Lomond will be getting new protection from anti-social behaviour from this summer, it has been announced.

Wild camping on the eastern shore of the loch will be prohibited between the months of March and October, with this rule to come into force on June 1st, the Scottish government has confirmed.

Instead, people will be able to pitch tents in designated spots only.

And in a further move, Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill has given Stirling Council permission to ban the drinking of alcohol on the eastern shore from June 1st.

Put together, these will aim to eliminate anti-social behaviour on the banks of the loch, which has been seen as a major problem in recent years.

As well as being better for campers, such a move may also ensure a more peaceful time for those who go walking along the West Highland way or seek to climb Ben Lomond, the southernmost Munro.
