Wild Camping - The Dangers

Posted by Admin on

These pictures were sent to us by a customer and follower on Facebook. He took them near the top of Benarty Hill in Fife which he said had looked as if there had been a plane crash! There were scorch marks on the grass where a fire had been lit along with cooking equipment. A tent box was left discarded, along with pole and peg bags, sleeping bag stuff sacks, empty cans, left-over food scattered everywhere, general rubbish. A disgraceful sight. The discarded equipment was of the disposable type and looked as if it had been purchased from a supermarket.
The customer conveyed his concerns to us by saying that if this is what the countryside can look like during  lockdown what will it look like when lockdown is lifted?


We at Summits are horrified at the pictures. We have to hope that what happened on the east bank of Loch Lomond is not going to spread like an epidemic through our wonderful countryside once lockdown is lifted. There are elements in our society who don't give a dam about the needs and wishes of others and we therefore have to 'stay alert' to the situation about to unfold on us all. Keep Scotland beautiful - report anyone you find trying to spoil it for the majority. Stay safe and camp responsibly.
