A member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) has called for a proposed ban on wild camping to be extended to several areas of Scotland's countryside.
Conservative MSP for Mid Scotland and Fife Murdo Fraser said the proposed bar on camping on the eastern shores of Loch Lomond should also apply on the banks of other lochs.
These include lochs Tay, Tummel and Rannoch, with Mr Fraser suggesting wild campers displaced by the proposed Lomond ban would simply move elsewhere.
People keen to pitch their tents
in formally designated camping areas will not be affected by any ban.
The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Authority is currently consulting on plans to introduce the ban along the east banks of Loch Lomond around areas between Blamaha and Rowardennan to combat antisocial behaviour.
Such a situation has seen the police patrolling the area and handing out leaflets to the public on the issue.
