Final Say on Loch Lomond Camping Byelaws
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park Authority has received over 250 responses to the proposed camping byelaws that will see restrictions along the east side of Loch Lomond between Drymen and Rowardennan. The consultation closes on 3 May and anyone with an interest in the proposals is being encouraged to get in touch and have their say.
The National Park is looking at a number of measures aimed at improving the visitor experience in the area, one of Scotland’s most popular beauty spots. Over £400K will be invested in east Loch Lomond by the National Park Authority, Forestry Commission Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage. Plans include improving the car parking at Rowardennan and building a semi-formal camping area at Sallochy along with toilet provision and improvements to the car park. By introducing new byelaws, the National Park Authority hope to reduce anti-social behaviour including vandalism, damage to trees, littering, lighting fires and irresponsible camping.
The measures hope to safeguard the area for visitors, communities and future generations to enjoy.
