There's a bit of a stink going down in the Scottish countryside: the Outdoor Access Code established the right to wild camp in law, but communities around Loch Rannoch and Loch Lomond are thoroughly fed up with the mess left behind by anti-social campers.
Camping wild is one of the best ways to enjoy Scotland's fabulous scenery but some of Scotland's most beautiful areas are being spoiled by irresponsible camping. Every weekend hordes of people are heading for the hills and glens and setting up camp alongside lochs and rivers. But campers are leaving some rather unpleasant mementos behind them and now the authorities are having to step in and clean up.
