The new rules on camping
along the eastern shore of Loch Lomond came into force yesterday (June 2nd).
Under the byelaw, wild camping
along a seven-mile stretch of the eastern shore of mainland Britain's largest lake will not be permitted.
But those taking their tents
along will still be able to camp at official sites in the area, between Balmaha and Rowardennan.
The move has been introduced due to concerns about anti-social behaviour among some of those who have camped alongside the loch in the past.
Visitors to the area can also stay in guest houses and the youth hostel at Rowardennan, something those putting on their hiking boots
and taking on the 95-mile challenge of the West Highland way may do as the route passes along the lochside.
Other reasons for visiting the area include climbing Ben Lomond, the southernmost of Scotland's 283 Munros at a height of 3,195 ft.
