The same could be said for Football matches but we still have a massive police presence. So you are saying we should let them back so as not to spoil other areas? Nah a total ban like in England would be better that way wildcampers would do what they do here and go high and discreet and leave no trace. It works for us.
I think you are maybe misunderstanding that we already have access legislation which applies across Scotland. This legislation creates, and I quote, "Restricted Zones".
My introduction to camping was at some of the very locations LLTNP wish to ban people from. We didn't all come out of a packet, filled with knowledge and responsibility. These things have to be learned.
Many years back I attempted the West Highland Way, and did so with equipment and supplies which were way to heavy and cumbersome. I camped twice along Loch Lomond, one of those locations would no doubt fall into one of the new "Restricted Zones". Had Police or Park Rangers attempted to move me I doubt I would have had the energy...
If Police Scotland, Park Rangers and the local community co-operate, and have the will to do so they could already deal with the anti-social campers. They aren't doing so. I would ask people to consider why that should be the case.
They wish to make it against the law to do something which is, and has been for years, legal. Once they have outlawed it they then intend to sell the right to camp back to us. They are trying to further a commercial agenda, not an access one.
What they have proposed could be used to further erode our access rights, and that is not something I can support.
I'm looking to raise awareness the ban on wild camping in Loch Lomond and Trossach National Park in 2017. I've set up a Facebook page to help co-ordinate some sort of action. it's at https://www.facebook.com/No-Camping-Ban-in-Loch-Lomond-Trossachs-National-Park-190673374625961/
I used to subscribe to Trail, never had any problems. I recently subscribed to TGO. Having waited and waited for a decent gift offer I gave up and subscribed through the MCofS for £35, saving £25-ish a year on the cover price.
