    We need to make sure that we spread the word that this isn't tolerated!

    What is worrying is the following comment that was in the report.

    "The complaints come as Scottish ministers are being asked to back new curbs on Scotland’s access laws."

    The trouble is in finding the scruffy rats and making them clean it up, I even put a sweet paper in my pocket if out and about. Pete

    Can't blame them wanting to tighten up the laws when that is what they are faced with.
    Mindless idiots who have enjoyed their stay and moved on with absolutely no thought for others or their environment:mad:

    Sad and disturbing reading...don't know what the answer is...
    I suspect in time restrictions will follow making wild camping more difficult in places like Scotland or anywhere else that such behaviour becomes common...
    There are just more people doing it now than ever before and inevitable a few have no respect for anything...
    Sad...

    Disgusting.. and sadly..more wild camping bans are inevitable.. some people just don't deserve to live in such a beautiful country ..and the few will spoil it for the many..

    However, wild camping laws as defined in Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 (more commonly knows as the 'right to roam act ' ) do not include motorised vehicles or caravans.. wild camping as defined in the Act is camping in a small tent for one or two nights.. In Scotland, the laws on parking and use of a motorhome are the same as England and Wales ...

    The guidance on camping in the Scottish Outdoor Access Code relates to 'wild camping', also sometimes referred to as 'informal camping'. This type of camping should be interpreted as 'camping in the wild' and does not include camping on organised camp sites or with groups such as the Scouts or Guides.

    The Access Code says:

    Access rights extend to wild camping. This type of camping is lightweight, done in small numbers and only for two or three nights in any one place. You can camp in this way wherever access rights apply, but help to avoid causing problems for local people and land managers by not camping in enclosed fields of crops or farm animals and by keeping well away from buildings, roads or historic structures. Take extra care to avoid disturbing deer stalking or grouse shooting. If you wish to camp close to a house or building, seek the owner's permission. Leave no trace by:


    • taking away all your litter
    • removing all traces of your tent pitch and of any open fire (follow the guidance for lighting fires)
    • not causing any pollution.
    Seasonal camping restrictions and byelaws


    Byelaws restrict camping on the east side of Loch Lomond from the 1 March to the end of October. These byelaws make it an offence to camp or sleep outdoors or in a vehicle overnight on the east side of Loch Lomond outside designated camping sites. Full details of the restrictions, where they apply and designated camping sites can be found by visiting the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority website.

    Never Mind Wild Camping.....

    As a new motorhomer - I visited two CC campsites over the bank hols with two of my lads for the first time ever.

    After parking up I walked the site to explore the set up and facilities... The toilet/shower blocks where pristine and clean during the afternoon... and I was really impressed with them.

    However, when I re-visted the following morning to use them - I couldn't believe the state that some folk had left the loos and shower areas in!!.. and I mean filthy!!!!... Toilets blocked full of loo roll and excrement - unflushed.. Loo seats with excrement on them etc...

    I feel sorry for the poor wardens - who have to clean them daily...

    Some folk... (n)

    Third word of the headline says it all :mad:.
    But I have to agree with @Borderland , it strikes me as being a 'political' piece in order to gain support for "curbs on access" laws.
    It is a scatter gun blast, targeting not only wilding motorhomers, & tenters but also anglers.
    Have we really grown up into a generation where we 'expect' someone else to do all our cleaning/clearing up just because we've paid our taxes [or campsite fees]?
    ...and the old chestnut - do people live like this in their own homes? [Sadly, I think some do].

    plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Regrettably true. When I cycled from Edinburgh to Dorchester via back roads and heathlands, I was appalled at the polystyrene "clam shells", the empty cans, the "sports drinks" bottles just carelessly discarded in the most remote locations. Why, why, why?? I live near two schools and every day there is a paper trail of discarded sweet wrappers left by thoughtless children never taught that litter dumping is very antisocial and illegal. Sadly, jumping up and down and making a great fuss about it will not change much - I'm not sure what will.

    |If some people lived in a dustbin they would still throw their rubbish in the street,
    what a load of scumbags, the few spoiling it for the many as usual, unless they install cameras at these places we don't know what the answer is

    I also have to agree with the idea it is a politically aimed bit of much raking

    There is absolutely NOTHING to show this was anything to do with camping

    For all anyone knows it could just as easily have been some local low life who had fly tipped the crap there..

    Reading the stuff it strikes me as it is more than likely it was dumped by bone idle scum bag fishermen over quite a period of time.. Not just one person or a family that had camped there..

    It also strikes me that if the above is true, then it is almost certainly a place in common use.. so why has not the local authority made a bin or rubbish receptical of some kind available ?

    That looked more like fly tipping than campers! I live near the coast and on the back roads there are frequently fly tips; just last week a couple of mattresses had been dumped on some bushes on an unmade road - so definitely done deliberately.

    I really can't understand why anyone flytips either.

    Could be Itinerants , they leave a mess wherever they go and in the ROI most lay-bys have height barriers, that's why most of them have come over here, a scourge on the countryside.

    Sadly, as any keen walker will know, litter is a massive problem wherever cars or vans go.

    In my experience 90% of litter is down to fast food and drink bottle/cans.

    Much of the remaining 10% is dogsh!t bags.
