National park camping restrictions 'will not be extended'
Bookmark and Share
Those keen on taking their tents up to the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park to enjoy some wild camping will not see any increase in restrictions on this activity, the park authority has said.

Rumours had arisen that the ban on such camping along a stretch of Loch Lomond's east bank between Drymen and Rowardennan would be extended to cover other locations.

However, director of conservation and visitor experience Grant Moir said: "There are currently no plans to extend camping byelaws which have been piloted since June 2011 along the east side of Loch Lomond to other parts of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park."

Mr Moir said those with an interest in future issues of park management should join in the public consultation currently taking place.

The east side of the loch is popular as it does not have a major road there, unlike the far bank with the A82 running past.

Rowardennan is also popular as a start point for ascents of Ben Lomond, Scotland's southernmost Munro.
