Update: West Lomond and Trossachs new camping By-laws
In March 2017 new by-laws govering camping in areas around Loch Ard, Loch Chon, Loch Arklet, Loch Venechar, Loch Lubnaig, Loch Voil and Loch Earn will come into force. DofE Scotland is in communication with the Lomond and Trossachs NP about the planned camping permit and mangement scheme for these areas with regards to use by DofE teams, and details will be released once more is known. A permit system is planned, so teams planning to camp in the restricted area will have to apply for a permit in advance of their expedition. Early information suggests this will be free for DofE teams.
Update: Camping Areas in Comer Estate
The Comer Estate is a strong supporter of the DofE in Scotland and groups on Expedition often camp in the Comer area. To prevent disturbance to nesting and lek grounds for the endangered Blackcock bird several suitable campsites within the Gleann Gaoithe have been identified, which all DofE groups are asked to use. Please see the Camping on Comer Estate download for full details.
