Those who have been craving the beautiful, wild scenery of Scotland’s Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park will be pleased to know that you can once again apply for a permit to camp within the Camping Management Zone. You will need to book online and up to two weeks in advance in order for the park authorities to manage the numbers.

National Park Chief Executive, Gordon Watson, said: “We’re reminding people to check our website and book a camping permit in advance, as turning up without one may lead to disappointment if areas are already at full capacity.”

Camping Management Byelaws are still in effect and will be enforced by both National Park Rangers and Police Scotland and can result in a fine of up to £500. But helping you to keep on the right side of the byelaws is the recently opened motorhome service point at Tarbet on West Loch Lomond.

Permits cost £3 per unit, per night, for a maximum of three nights in any given area. The permits can be booked up to two weeks in advance. See here for details.
