New Camping Restrictions in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park

Starting March 1st, campers in certain areas of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park in Scotland will need to follow new rules regarding camping and fires.

As announced by the national park’s official Twitter account, byelaws covering camping and firelighting are now in effect until the end of September.

The temporary regulations aim to protect some of the park’s most beloved and environmentally sensitive lochshore areas during the busy spring and summer seasons.

While camping is generally permitted throughout the national park, these localised byelaws place some restrictions on where tents can be pitched and campfires built.

Park officials have not yet provided full details on the exact areas impacted or the specific rules campers must follow.

However, the byelaws are likely intended to prevent overcrowding, minimise wildfire risk, and preserve the natural setting around Loch Lomond and other picturesque lochs and riversides.

Outdoor enthusiasts planning to camp in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs over the next few months should check for the latest maps and guidance on the national park’s website before their trip.

Respecting any posted signs and instructions from park rangers will be essential.

With its stunning scenery of lochs, glens, and munros, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs remains a camping paradise – as long as visitors follow common sense principles of Leave No Trace ethics.

The new seasonal byelaws simply allow park managers to better maintain the ecological integrity of the most treasured lochshore landscapes.
