Helen Todd of Ramblers Scotland’s speaks about The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park wanting to put in a camping management bylaw to control numbers on busy parts of the Park. Looking at putting permit areas for people to camp and basic camping provision. These are to levitate the pressures of litter, vandalism and at times aggressive intimidating behaviour of folk drinking.
Ramblers Scotland believe that these bylaws undermine peoples right to roam and could stop people on long distance walking having no place to pitch their tent. Other National Parks around Scotland could take this bylaw on and would effect other walkers on long distance walks.
The thing is there is already existing legislation that isn’t being implemented with the Police undermanned and these remote area around the park are out of there way being in the countryside.
I hope the bylaws that could be coming in January will be stopped, so walkers can freely walk and roam over Scotland.
