The Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is introduced. Various forms of camping are popular in the park, ranging from formal campsites with provision for motor homes to wild camping. In Scotland the Land Reform Act allows informal camping and wild camping to be carried out responsibly across Scotland. Hebe Carus from the Mountaineering Council of Scotland explains how to camp responsibly and minimise impact to the environment.
The class could discuss or draw a poster about why people might be attracted to the idea of wild camping as opposed to other types of camping or accommodation. Discuss the balance of environmental impact versus comfort and facilities.
