A gazebo and a cool box were among items left in woodland at Livingston

Countryside rangers and nature reserve staff have been highlighting incidents of lockdown littering across Scotland.

An abandoned gazebo was among rubbish left in woodland at Livingston in West Lothian. Large logs were also found burned.

There has been fly-tipping and vandalism at the Blawhorn Moss National Nature Reserve at Stirling.

Earlier this month, Police Scotland said tents and other camping equipment were found abandoned at Loch Arkaig Pine Forest, an area in Lochaber with some of Scotland's last stands of ancient native Caledonian pinewood.

Police said not only was the littering an offence, the setting up of the camp broke Scottish government lockdown travel restrictions.
